About Us                History                The Girls                Alumni

Out of the Blue (OOTB) is Duke's award-winning and oldest female a cappella group. Since 1980, we have toured Club Med, performed in Carnegie Hall, performed live on Turkish Television, competed in SOJAM, sung the National Anthem at Duke basketball games, and entertained audiences at countless local, out-of-state, and overseas venues. Out of the Blue has appeared on multiple BOCA (Best of College A cappella) CDs and is consistently recognized and awarded by the Contemporary A Cappella Society (CASA). We love singing, traveling, and performing and hope to share our love of music with every audience we perform for.

Review by Mouth Off!

Check out what Mouth Off!’s Dave Brown and Christopher Diaz have to say about Still Point.


Duke Out of the Blue has established itself as one of the best groups out there, one of the best all-female groups in college, and as they show on this record, Out of the Blue is in some respects a pro female a cappella group, as far as I'm concerned.
