About the Gospel Choir

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 performance schedule. The Choir regularly performs at the Naval Academy for Sunday Chapel services, special conferences, and seasonal concerts. Other venues include churches, schools, and community centers.

Throughout its distinguished history, the Gospel Choir has performed often at the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site, and has spread its message of inspiration, motivation, and exhortation throughout the country including tours to Los Angeles, St. Louis, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, New Orleans, Detroit, San Diego, Key West, Orlando, Miami, Pensacola, and Bermuda.

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 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.
