[UPDATE: WITH VIDEOS] O Say, Can The Orphenians Sing!

It’s always an honor to sing the national anthem at a professional sports event.

The honor was particularly meaningful tonight. Staples’ Orphenians performed at Yankee Stadium — immediately following a Yankee Stadium-wide memorial service for the Orlando massacre victims.

It was the 2nd year in a row for the elite a cappella group. Several recent graduates sang.

Their last gig ever as Orphenians was a night to remember.

Westport's "jazz rabbi," Greg Wall, happened to be at Yankee Stadium tonight when his hometown choir performed. He proudly sent this photo to "06880."

Recent graduate Aaron Samuels poses with his good buddy, the Colorado Rockies' Trevor Story.

    Many Westporters here in Colorado. Not surprised you don’t know the Rockies, although in 2007 they were in the most lopsided World Series against Boston. How about the Denver Broncos?!

      Yes, I’ve heard of the Broncos, but I have to admit that I don’t know what sport they play. I’m not a sports aficionado — I only root for the Red Sox.
