The Naval Academy Women’s Glee Club first pitched a tune in 1976, when the Naval Academy opened for women midshipmen. The current director is Ms. Cindy Bauchspies and the ladies perform a diverse repertoire which includes classical, sacred, folk, patriotic, popular, and Broadway music. Their performances have been held across America and internationally, including recent tours to Florida, California, Hawaii, New York, North and South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Rome, and London. Recent repertoire has included Orff’s Carmina Burana, Requiems by Brahms, Mozart and Verdi, Haydn’s Creation, Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, and Ralph Vaughan-Williams’ A Sea Symphony among many others. The Women’s Glee Club was nationally acclaimed for their appearance at the Inaugural Concert, where they performed “We Are One” on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial for a live audience of over half a million people.
Listen for yourself below to their performance of “And So It Goes” and you will not want to miss their performance at Patriots Point on 17 January at 1 PM on the USS Yorktown.
