Ensembles perform Songs of the Long Gray Line July 25
The West Point Band will present a joint concert with the West Point Alumni Glee Club on Saturday, July 25, at 7:30 p.m. at Trophy Point Amphitheater. The two ensembles will perform songs near and dear to both the academy and America. In the event of inclement weather, this concert will take place at Eisenhower Hall Ballroom. The performance is free and open to the public.
Titled Songs of the Long Gray Line, the concert will feature beloved West Point songs, such as “The Corps” and “Alma Mater,” and will also honor soldiers who have fought throughout history, and include music from World War II and Vietnam. West Point Glee Club Director Constance Chase will lead the joint ensembles in “God Bless the Soldiers” and “God Bless America,” and West Point mathematics professor Col. Doug McInvale will perform with his old cadet group, Six Pack.
