Waring's Pennsylvanians was a band and choral group which was most popular in the 1920s and 1930s but continued to exist and sing until Fred Waring's death in 1984.
They began playing at colleges, fraternity parties, proms, etc. and later went on to play in theaters.
They became very popular and by the end of the 1920s were very much in demand. In 1929 they starred in a sound film called Syncopation, released by RKO Radio Pictures. Later, they became more famous as a choral group.
From their beginnings through 1932, they were one of Victor's better selling orchestras, but ceased recording after November, 1932; they thought they were competing against their radio show and would not record again until 1942. They didn't break up; they continued to be popular on radio and were pioneers in broadcast television.
