Our History

Established in 2005, Blue of a Kind formed around a group of local singers with extensive singing experience, having recorded with some top collegiate men's groups. Music Director Robert Eggers approached the group with his original arrangements and selections from the American Songbook. He served as back-up director of the Yale Whiffenpoofs and director of the Society of Orpheus and Bacchus, arranging songs for both groups. These singers shared a strong interest in developing an ensemble in order to recreate something of their collegiate a cappella experience. Not long afterward the group was featured as part of the Polymnia chorus' spring 2005 program. Since that time Blue of a Kind has continued to explore a wide range of songs with a focus on developing original arrangements and material.
