The New Blue is Yale University’s first all-women organization. Their group was founded in 1969, the same year that Yale University first admitted undergraduate women. Since 2020, they have been honored to sing with women and also, non-binary folks of note. The singers hail from a rich musical history dating back 50 years, and as such, hope to always stand (and sing!) as a proud, living symbol of change at Yale.
Their first album, Since You Asked, was released in 1970. Since then, they have produced seven CDs, featuring an ever-changing repertoire exclusively arranged by members. Their 30th Anniversary CD, Can’t Stop, was the recipient of the Contemporary A Cappella Society’s award for Best Female Collegiate Album.
In recent seasons, The New Blue has performed worldwide at venues in Paris, Hong Kong, London, Singapore, and beyond. They have delighted audiences worldwide and have sung for former presidents George Bush and Barack Obama.
This concert is open to the public at no charge through the generous support of the Peterson Foundation.
