Yale’s Out of the Blue a cappella group will perform on the historical 100 Men Hall stage on Friday, March 17, 2023 at 6:30PM. Bay Saint Louis native Sadie Pohl is a member of the group. Tickets are $8.
Out of the Blue is Yale University's award-winning contemporary a cappella group, known for its tight vocals and electric performance style. Founded in 1986 by a group of eight students determined to create a new brand of a cappella at Yale, Out of the Blue (OOTB, pronounced OOT-bah) has evolved into Yale's most dynamic vocal group, entertaining audiences near and far with an eclectic repertoire of contemporary genres.
OOTB has performed in a range of diverse venues from the United States Embassy in Singapore to Madison Square Garden in New York City. The group has opened for major recording artists like Ben Folds and performed for Nobel Laureates, Supreme Court Justices, and local New Haven schoolchildren. In addition to performances, OOTB leads master classes for students all over the world, many of which have inspired kids to start their own school a cappella groups.
Each year, OOTB embarks on 2-3 tours to share our music with audiences across the world. Past tour destinations have included London, Rio de Janeiro, Montreal, Singapore, Geneva, Ukraine, Hong Kong, Colombia, and cities all over the United States.
