Travis Roon, the Glee Club’s Sound Technician, set up his equipment in the very large auditorium, and was able to maintain a perfect balance for the Glee Club to sing at their best.

Finishing up the properties before the sound-check, the gentlemen worked quickly to set up the risers and microphones.

The gentlemen made a powerful entrance with Ted Arthur’s original song “America, We Arise”; a great way for the seniors to return to Warren for the first time since their freshman year!

Playing out to both the floor seats and a large balcony section, the Glee Club entertained with familiar tunes, including “Gary, Indiana” from the “Music Man Medley”.
