Ladies First is Michigan State University's only all-female a cappella group. Established in 1985, Ladies First performs at community, university, and private events. Over the years, Ladies First has continued to grow in the a cappella community by participating in festival showcases, winning awards in the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA), receiving a CARA nomination, and performing across the country. We strive to make musical, meaningful arrangements and entertain along the way.
