About The New Blue:
In the fall of 1969, the first-ever class of female undergraduates set foot on the Yale University campus. Intent on breaking from the all-male tradition of Yale’s “Old Blue” and embodying the new face of the university, 11 pioneering women formed a new organization and dubbed themselves “The New Blue.” Today, The New Blue is committed to maintaining a dynamic repertoire that encompasses a wide variety of styles and is arranged exclusively by members. Whether singing for an intimate black-tie affair or community benefit concert, or simply sharing music with fellow Yale students, the women of The New Blue consistently captivate audiences with their music, grace, and inspiring presence.
