From Cambridge to Cape Town to Carnegie Hall to Fiji, the Harvard Krokodiloes have delighted audiences worldwide with their unique blend of a cappella harmony and humour.

On Wednesday night the Krokodiloes entertained people from all walks of life at the Japan-Pacific ICT Centre, University of the South Pacific.

The centre was jam packed with people that even the walkway was taken up with those sitting at every corner and those that managed to stand on whatever space was left.

On Thursday night the Krokodiloes performed at a private Evening of Music at the US Ambassador Judith Ceftkin’s residence.

Founded back in 1946 at the historic Hasty Pudding Club, the Krokodiloes are Harvard University’s oldest and finest a cappella singing group, now performing for audiences all over the Greater Boston area, the United States, and the world.

Having derived their name from the ancient Greek word for crocodile, the group now consists of 12 tuxedo-clad male undergraduates, singing music from the Great American Songbook and beyond.

The Krokodiloes presented a polished, professional product, fine tuned in the course of performing over 200 concerts every year.

In addition, to the more than 100 concerts that the group performs stateside during the school year, each summer for the past 30 years the Krokodiloes have embarked on a 10 week, six continent world tour.

During that time the Krokodiloes have spread their musical goodwill to over 100 countries and performed for kings, presidents, princes, and ambassadors in all corners of the globe.

The Kroks have also made Bermuda their Spring Break home for over 40 years, entertaining at the finest hotels and restaurants.

In their almost seven decade history, the Kroks have also recorded over 30 albums and performed in the finest concert halls across the world including the Lincoln Centre, the Kennedy Centre, and the Sydney Opera House.
