On Saturday, December 5th, the Granby Education Foundation presented its 2015 Arts Endowment Fundraiser: an evening with
Yale’s only co-ed A Cappella group,
Redhot & Blue!
In connection with this event, Red Hot and Blue presented a workshop for the High School Chamber Singers who then performed a song with them during the concert. In addition, the 5th and 6th grade choirs from Kelly Lane and Wells Road performed an opening number for Redhot & Blue!
In 1977, when the pop charts read like a who's who of mullets and bellbottoms, a few recently graduated Yale Whiffenpoofs joined with several members of the newly formed women's a cappella groups on campus in order to do something completely different. They wanted to travel back in time and pay homage to the great pioneers -- Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington and Billie Holiday, to name a few.
