The United States Naval Academy GOSPEL CHOIR, under the direction of Ms. Karla Scott, is an upbeat inspirational musical ensemble. Comprised of midshipmen from various places, races and creeds, the Gospel Choir is reflective of the diverse interests and ethnicities within the Brigade of Midshipmen. Their common bond is musical talent and a passion to praise through song.
Throughout the year, the USNA Gospel Choir maintains an active schedule and regularly performs not only at the Naval Academy but throughout the nation at churches, schools, and community centers. The choir has taken its message of inspiration, motivation, and exhortation to Atlanta, the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, New Orleans, Detroit, San Diego, Key West, Orlando, Miami, Pensacola, Bermuda, and Korea, and was seen in President Obama’s 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 Gospel Choir is a wonderful part of the Naval Academy family. Not only does it allow its members to express their faith in song, but it also provides the public an opportunity to witness the diversity and talents of today’s Brigade of Midshipmen. The Gospel Choir continues to excel, spreading the joy of Gospel Music and assisting the Naval Academy to fulfill its various missions.ECA WEBSITE: www.usna.edu/music
