Anticipating the exciting week ahead, the Purduette ladies load their luggage onto the trailer to depart for Camp Tecumseh.

Camp is one of the rare times that the Glee Club and Purduettes get to mingle with each other. Dinner is a time where both groups can get to know each other and practice introducing their brothers and sisters in song.

The ladies get right back to rehearsing after dinner. Here, Jeff directs another new song, “A Brand New You.”

After a long day of rehearsals, the Glee Club and Purduettes again get the opportunity to enjoy some free time before bed. Both of the ensembles enjoyed the chance to make s’mores and meet new friends.


Daily Student Perspective

PurduettesI never thought I would have so much fun the first day of camp! After we unloaded the bus, the Purduettes went straight to work. In addition to teaching the new women songs that were already in our repertoire, we learned new ballads and showtunes together. I am so excited for the new women to debut everything they will have learned this week! The old women are learning a few things as well. We have had the opportunity to mingle with the men of the Glee Club over dinner and s’mores. It is nice to not only bond with my fellow Purduettes, but also with our fellow brothers in song. I feel that these relationships will only unify and strengthen this tight-knit organization. Sadly, this is my final year in Purduettes. I cherish the memories I have made and work on making this year the best year possible for myself and my sisters in song.
