Tara’s help was greatly appreciated as the song is once again returning to form. The gentlemen of the Glee Club will be traveling to Camp Tecumseh tomorrow to resume their camp activities for the rest of the week.


Daily Student Perspective

Glee ClubWelcome to the 2011-2012 Purdue Varsity Glee Club! This, my fourth camp, began here on the campus of Purdue. The twenty newmen of the Glee Club were immediately placed on the risers and, along with the returning men, our new group began singing straight away. After a morning of reviewing old music and a chance for the new and old men to get to know each other over lunch, we dove right in to learning five new songs. Look for them to be performed at a show near you soon! Dinner offered the opportunity for the men of the Glee Club and the women of the Purduettes to eat and socialize together as brothers and sisters in song. We rounded out the evening fine tuning one of our biggest crowd-pleasers, 'Strike Up the Band'. Tonight is now a time of rest before we load the buses bright and early tomorrow to continue our week at Camp Tecumseh. It's shaping up to be a fantastic year, and I hope to see you at a show down the road!

In song,
Steve De Witte
