(Paris Expat Soirée Dinner. Meet New People)

Our Special Guests are:

REDHOT & BLUE
Yale University A Capella Jazz Singers
http://www.redhotandblue.org

We last hosted the group in 2011. Great to have them back!

Redhot & Blue, usually shortened to Redhot, is Yale University’s oldest coeducational a cappella group.

Founded in 1977, the group has released many albums and toured around the United States and the world. Repertoire for the group is based in the jazz genre, though many of their arrangements stray from this. Redhot is a member of the Singing Group Council of Yale.

The group’s name is derived from the musical Red, Hot and Blue (1936), written by Yale alumnus Cole Porter, class of 1913. The group name combines Redhot into one word and uses an ampersand, unlike the show. Cole Porter’s work is featured often in Redhot’s repertoire, from Antoinette Birby, written when he was in college, to more popular songs like “It’s De-Lovely”, “I Get a Kick Out of You”, “Night And Day”, and “Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye”.

See: background of Redhot and Blue and some videos They’re terrific!

Address: At a trendy, lovely and fun apartment in the Marais at the metro Hotel de Ville (ligne 1).

It’s €25.00 (EXACT CHANGE. NO COINS) for a fun dinner with wine.

A fun dinner, a great topic, meeting and networking with fun, new international people.
