Glee Club

I had a great time on our fall tour this year. From visiting Chicago to singing for a Bride-to-be, the whole experience was a whirlwind of excitement and song. We were lucky to have a few hours in Chicago to roam the city. This was the first time a good many of my fellow Glee Clubbers had visited Chicago. We performed at three shows and one church service this weekend,and all of them were great venues. It was my first real Glee Club tour, and it was a wonderful three days. I cannot wait for our next performance and of course the Purdue Christmas Show!

In Song,

Drew Kempin
