United States Naval Academy Women’s Glee Club in Concert

Saturday, March 15, 2014 – 4:00 p.m.

First Presbyterian Church Sanctuary

The United States NavalAcademy WOMEN’S GLEE CLUB was founded in 1976 when women first entered the Naval Academy.  Under the direction of Ms. Cindy Bauchspies, the ensemble performs a diverse repertoire which includes classical, sacred, folk, patriotic, popular, and Broadway music.  They have performed across America and internationally, including recent tours to Florida, California, Hawaii, New York, North and South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Rome, and London.  In addition to the Academy’s annually sold-out concerts of Handel’s Messiah with the Annapolis Symphony (often nationally and internationally broadcast), the Women’s Glee Club performs masterpieces of choral-orchestral literature joining with the Naval Academy Men’s Glee Club.  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.  Recent notable appearances include the Inaugural Concert “We Are One” performed on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial for a live audience of over half a million people and an internationally televised audience, the Official National Dedication Ceremony of the Pentagon Memorial (9/11), concert tours of Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, FL, Phoenix, Chicago and numerous performances at the Naval Academy.  Their recent official visit to Brazil has been hailed as providing, “more positive results for the relations of both countries than that of a mighty aircraft carrier visit.”  The Glee Club was personally selected to present a concert with James Taylor at the Kennedy Library in Boston at the recent JFK 50th Commemorative Events.
