Music & NBA – Glee Club Choir – 1985 – West Point Academy Cadets Glee Club Performs The “Star Spangled Banner” At The NBA All Star Game

The United States Military Academy (USMA)….which is also known as West Point Academy or simply The Point….is a four-year federal service academy in West Point, New York…..as it was originally established as a fort that sits on strategic high ground overlooking the Hudson River with a scenic view 50 miles (80 km) north of New York City…..and is the oldest of the five American service academies….whereas, the academy traces its roots to 1801….when President Thomas Jefferson directed that plans be set in motion to establish the United States Military Academy at West Point.

The entire central campus is a national landmark….and home to scores of historic sites, buildings, and monuments…..as the majority of the campus’s Norman-style buildings are constructed from gray and black granite. The campus is a popular tourist destination…..with a visitor center and the oldest museum in the United States Army.   

As seen in this video herewith….the West Point Academy Glee Club sings the “Star Spangled Banner” at the start of the 1985 NBA All Star Game…..which provides another awesome rendition of our National Anthem.
