The gentlemen got a chance to meet members of the Singing Hoosiers onstage before combining to rehearse Battle Hymn of the Republic.
The guys enjoyed a fun-filled meal with some of the Singing Hoosiers.
The Singing Hoosiers took to the stage first to kick off the concert.
Then the Glee Club came on to end the show.
The guys tell the audience all about “Gary Indiana.”
Senior Ben Kline sings the solo for “Can’t Get Indiana Off my Mind.”
Freshman Michael Eldridge belts out the solo for “Banks of the Wabash.”
Flashbacks were the first specialty to go, getting funky with “Stayin’ Alive.”
Ba-na-na sings L-O-V-E during the Glee Club’s Nat King Cole Medley.
Senior Jacob Ludwig sings the run out, “Life Could be a Dream.”
Voiceovers perform Train's“ Hey Soul Sister” for an excited audience.
The Glee Club gets classical while Sophomore Robert Lechner performs the solo during “Lambscapes.”
The guy debuted their new rendition of “Strike up the Band.”
The song included choreography that had the guys form a Block P onstage.
“Strike up the Band” also included an 8-man stomp team that led the dance breaks.
