Daily Student Perspective
Another day of Glee Club camp is over. I can’t believe we are already almost halfway through the week! We started the day by loading the buses at the Elliot Hall of Music. It was really cool to see the properties being loaded on the bus again. It brings back the memories of many shows over the years! When we got to camp the old men enjoyed some much needed R&R while the new men had rehearsal. They are doing a great job so far on knowing their music, which is a great way to start the year! After lunch we had full group rehearsal before our pool time with the Purduettes. I enjoyed the game of water polo that a few of the glee clubbers got going! Dinner was once again with the Purduettes. It was nice to have time to get to know our sisters in song today! After dinner was a rehearsal. We are learning quite a few new numbers this year and are excited to premiere them all. We finished up the night at a bonfire with the Purduettes. It was a great day, and the fact that we had a lighter rehearsal schedule meant our voices could recover a bit in order to hit the music hard again tomorrow! I am so excited to be back with my brothers in song!
