The ACCJ is delighted to host an evening with the Harvard Krokodiloes, Harvard University's oldest a cappella singing group.
The ‘Kroks’ have a long and illustrious history stemming back to their formation at the Hasty Pudding Club in 1946.
Since then, this group of twelve Harvard undergraduates have shared their musical gifts with audiences across the country and around the globe. Their fine musicianship and youthful energy, combined with their unique blend of snappy choreography and witty humor, have made them instant crowd-pleasers wherever they roam.
Among the luminaries the Kroks have entertained through the years are Ella Fitzgerald, Yo-Yo Ma, Princess Grace and Princess Caroline of Monaco, King Bhumibol of Thailand, Elizabeth Taylor, Julia Roberts, and Leonard Bernstein, ’39 (who composed music for the group). They have performed on National Public Radio, “Good Morning America,” “The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson,” and on television internationally.
The Kroks have been closely associated with ACCJ Chairman Emeritus Kumi Sato's family and as a result have a long relationship with Japan. In an effort to give back to the country and the family that hosted them for many years the Kroks offered their time and talent for an ACCJ Charity Concert!
