Daily Student Perspective - Day 7: Senior Josh Getto

Finally, the day we have all been waiting for: we get some time on the beach! The day started with a short show by the pool, followed by lunch. Then, it was time to relax under the sun. Guys were playing ultimate Frisbee, volleyball, and swimming in the ocean. It’s good to have some time to unwind and enjoy our Spring Break. Rejuvenated, we got back to business with a show at Naples United Church of Christ. The group seems to be really clicking right now, as each show just seems to get better and better. The energy on stage is electric, and the audience was definitely feeling it too. We even saw former PMO staff member and Glee club accompanist Jae Kellogg! After another long day we headed back to our homestays for a good night sleep. We are all looking forward to our day off tomorrow! With only two shows left, my last spring break is quickly coming to a close. I’m sure I speak for all the seniors when I say, we are really going to miss the fun we had together here.
