In 2006, a vocal jazz octet (later to be named “Midnight Blue”) was formed in the University of Michigan Women’s Glee Club. The octet underwent drastic changes in 2009, expanding its repertoire to include pop, doo-wop, hip-hop, be-bop, doo-wop, tragic ballads, and side-splitting parodies. Since joining the Michigan A Cappella Council in 2010, Midnight Blue earned a stellar reputation around campus, being described as “kind of funny” and lovingly referred to as “that one group, I think they were girls who sang about dating a GSI.” Starting again in 2018 after a short break in 2017, the new Midnight Blue brings a new sound and an increase to 13 members!
The new Midnight Blue shares a passion for female empowerment and performing all kinds of music together. When they’re not performing, you can probably catch them arguing about the technicalities of food categories (are Pop Tarts ravioli? Is cereal a soup? Still up for debate) or spending too much money at Pizza House!
