“No fun without music – no music without fun.” That’s the motto of the West Point Alumni Glee Club. An evening of fun and splendid music is guaranteed on Friday, October 20, when this prestigious group performs in the Encore Theater, singing patriotic and inspirational songs with excellence and gusto.
The West Point Alumni Glee Club was established in 2007 by ex-cadet glee club members that believe that traditional music provides an important, inspiring service to America. Members average almost 20 years of active duty service with 75 percent being combat veterans. They range from four-star Air Force Generals to Army Captains, all graduating between 1952 and 2002.
“Honoring our Veterans Throughout History” will be the upcoming concert’s theme in keeping with the club’s goal to spread the love of music among active military, veterans and their families, and to audiences throughout America.
This concert promises to be a “must see sellout” so plan to buy your $5 ticket on Monday or Tuesday, October 16 or 17, between 4:30 and 6 p.m. in all dining room lobbies. Doors to the Encore Theater will open at 7 p.m. on Friday, October 20 for the 7:30 p.m. performance.
