ANNAPOLIS, Md. —  The U.S. Naval Academy Women’s Glee Club will perform in Phoenix, Monday, March 13, at 7 p.m. Admission is free and no tickets are required. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. 

The concert will be held at All Saints Episcopal Church, located at 6300 N. Central Ave., Phoenix.

“I am excited to be able to bring this premier ensemble to Arizona,” said Director of the Glee Club Dr. Cindy Bauchspies. “We are looking forward to traveling to Phoenix and inviting new audiences to hear our midshipmen perform some fantastic musical selections.”

 The Naval Academy Women’s Glee Club travels regularly around the country, representing the Naval Academy and the naval service. The Glee Club has received international acclaim for their performances over the past decade in Hawaii, Arizona and Florida.

“I am looking forward to bringing my friends in the Glee Club home to the Phoenix area to perform in some great venues,” Midshipman Second Class (junior) Savannah Bates, a graduate of Seton Catholic Prep School.

The Women’s Glee Club will also appear in concert Saturday, March 11, at 7 p.m. at Valley Presbyterian Church in Paradise Valley, Ariz., and Saturday, March 18, at 7 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Tucson, Ariz.

Founded in 1845, the U.S. Naval Academy today is a prestigious four-year service academy that prepares midshipmen morally, mentally and physically to be professional officers in the naval service.  More than 4,400 men and women representing every state in the U.S. and several foreign countries make up the student body, known as the Brigade of Midshipmen.  Midshipmen learn from an academic faculty, comprised of both military and civilian professors and participate in intercollegiate varsity sports and extracurricular activities.  They also study subjects to include small arms, drill, seamanship and navigation, cyber security, tactics, naval engineering and weapons, leadership, ethics and military law.  Upon graduation, midshipmen earn a tax-payer funded Bachelor of Science degree in a choice of 25 different academic majors and go on to serve at least five years of exciting and rewarding service as commissioned officers in the U.S. Navy or the U.S. Marine Corps.
