The Harvard Krokodiloes, Harvard University's oldest and most prestigious a cappella singing group, will perform tomorrow as part of the handover celebrations.

They will delight audiences with a lively performance of jazz, swing, ballads and rock standards from the 1920s, '30s, '40s and '50s.

They will also talk to students and their families about going to top universities in the United States. The two-hour show will include a panel discussing various topics relevant to university admissions.

These 12 outstanding young men, who are 'all witty, insightful, personable and intelligent', will also be conducting a question-and-answer session. The sponsor of the show, Kaplan Educational Centre, has kindly offered Young Post readers 50 free tickets to attend the event.

Interested students should take the front page of today's Young Post to the Kaplan Educational Centre either today or tomorrow by noon in order to re ceive their free tickets. (Note: only one free ticket per Young Post cover). The 50 free tickets are available only to Hong Kong students on a first-come, first- served basis. Parents who accompany their children can purchase tickets at a discounted price of $100.
