A Busy Week for the Glee Club
Eight members of the Club traveled to North Salem, NY to provide the National Anthem for The American Gold Cup equestrian tournament. Over 7,000 people were in attendance and an international television audience tuned in for the event. Days later the entire Club supported the Memorial Ceremony to honor Cadet Candidate Benjamin Bocthler, performing the National Anthem, Mansions of the Lord, and the West Point Alma Mater. Two days later seven cadets from the Club provided musical support to the Diversity and Inclusion Leadership Conference. That Saturday CDT Dylan Chartlon '20 performed the National Anthem to open the Army-Morgan State football game. During that weekend the entire Glee Club relocated to Camp Buckner for a weekend of Teambuilding activities. The Club integrated new members, teaching them the West Point canon of songs and instilling the culture of excellence for which the Club is known. The event provided nearly 15 hours of practice time for work on the season's repertoire.
