About Maryland Glee
Welcome to Maryland Glee!
We are a growing show choir group for everyone! This is a club for adults 16+ and elementary school kids who would like to sing and dance for fun! We are all inclusive! Non-competitive. The elementary school program is currently at Rolling Knolls Elementary, but we play to expand as an afterschool program for Anne Arundel County.
This show choir isn't like a lot of the other ones in MD. We are non-competitive and our mission is to gather like minded people to share glee through singing and dancing together. The plan is for this club to become a non-profit organization eventually.
We get our music through JWpepper. For the Adult section, the sky is the limit! We can sing what ever we want. Broadway hits, 80s, 90s, and popular music now. We will meet 2x/month to start, but there are no requirements. As adults you know the more you commit and practice the more likely you are to be able to preform. We will practice until we have some numbers together, then we can plan to sing in public for charity. Again, there are no obligations here, if you just want to hang out and sing during practice, great! If you are looking to preform in public, great!
OUR NEW section for KIDS!
Maryland Glee Kids is an afterschool program. We will be using "sing-along" method learning and some simple and fun dancing. This is for kids K-5 so families can all enjoy the experience together.

About the Director/Founder
Natalie Ogilvie-Watkins is a business owner and loves to be a part of her community.
Natalie grew up in Canton, GA. She was a member of the Honor Chorus in GA for 3 years in high school and show choir as well as some theater/acting. Natalie's father, John Ogilvie, owned the most prestigious sound recording rig in GA when she was in Honor Chorus. Although Natalie does not study sound recording she does remember some basics on the subject.
She majored in Graphic Design at Savannah College of Art and Design, but did not go in that direction professionally after college.
She was an operations manager in pet care for about 15 years then began her own businesses, and Maryland Glee. Natalie owns Maria's Fine Art and CW pies. She founded Maryland Glee in the summer of 2023. Her fine art has been showing since she was a child, and continues to donate fine art to multiple galleries. Please see her CW pies page and About the Artist page for more information on her other businesses. CW pies fundraises for not only Maryland Glee some elementary schools in Anne Arundel County as well.
A word from the Director:
"I started this club because I loved show choir....and the show Glee!! (RIP Cory Monteith, Naya Rivera, and Mark Salling.) Also, Ryan Murphy is brilliant for creating such a caring, witty show, full of great music!
There are many choirs in Maryland and theater groups etc...but no real Adult show choirs (not for competition). I want this to be fun and eventually I would love to see this grow into a non profit that can do shows to raise money for charities.
I can't wait to hear all of you! GLEE!"
