Under the direction of conductor Constance Chase, the group is in high demand, and their voices have be heard in movie soundtracks and at nationally broadcast sporting events, such as Super Bowl XXXIX.
“We are honored to have the West Point Glee Club performing at St. John’s,” said SJSCS President Kenneth Bryson. “They are exceptionally talented musicians with a rich tradition of excellence and a motto that everyone can relate to: 'No fun without music, no music without fun'.’”
The Glee Club has a wide repertoire, including all genres of American and international choral compositions.
