Red, Hot & Blue in Rye
The concert, organized in part by YWAA board director Bill Nightingale '53, will also feature Princeton's Roaring 20 group. The two groups performed at the Osborn last Feb., 2017, and in Dec., 2015. They will sing selections from jazz, pop and the American songbook.
Red, Hot, & Blue is Yale's oldest co-ed singing group, setting an example for Yale's oldest singing group, the Whiffenpoofs, which this month selected for the next school term its first female singer in its history.
In 2017, Red, Hot & Blue celebrated its 40th anniversary with tours in France and Puerto Rico. In 2018, the group sang in Little Rock in January and will spend spring break in Seattle. In May, it plans a trip to China.
Its current repertoire includes such selections as "Georgia on My Mind," "Blackbird," and "Every time We Say Goodbye."
