Members of the a cappella group "Ladies First" pose for a photo during the fall of 2021, outside of Sample Gates. "Ladies First" is the only all-female a cappella group on campus. and they will be performing their Fall Show Friday night at 7 p.m. in Jacobs Recital Hall.

Ladies First A Cappella, an all-female a cappella group on campus, will perform in their annual Fall Show tomorrow at 7 p.m. at Recital Hall in Merrill Hall. 

“This is kind of a return for us,” IU senior and music director Maria Krause said. “So a lot of excitement is going into this.”

Krause said the Fall Show highlights everything Ladies First has been working on this semester. The setlist includes 17 songs, featuring some from Ladies First’s album “In Full Bloom” from March 2021. The show will last about an hour and a half with one intermission, Krause said. 

Along with an in-person audience, the show will also be livestreamed. People can purchase in-person tickets or watch the livestream on the Ladies First BookTix page. The link can be found in the Ladies First Instagram bio. Tickets are $5 for students and $10 for adults. 

This is the first time since before the COVID-19 pandemic that Ladies First will be able to have a large in-person audience, Krause said.  Recital Hall can hold 500 people, but Krause said Ladies First is limiting seating to around half of that to maintain safety and social distance. 

“The livestreams were great, and we were definitely happy to perform at all during the pandemic,” Krause said. “But coming back this fall and being able to perform for our friends, family and everyone around Bloomington is definitely really exciting to show everyone what we've been working on and how much work we've been putting into it.”

Ladies First has been working hard to prepare for their Fall Show and people should come see the outcome, Krause said.  

“We're just 13 college students, and we want to have fun with the audience,” Krause said. “We want it to be a really great experience for everyone.”
