Center Stage: Purduettes at the Underground Corrosion Short Course

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

The ladies are excited to be performing again for the 51st Annual Underground Corrosion Short Course! Engineers, corrosion technicians, and those in the construction and maintenance fields attend the conference to learn about the causes of corrosion and how to control it.

The ladies start the show off with the high-energy number “Brand New You.”

New women Abby Everett and Grace Bagshaw entertain the crowd on the solos.

The conference attendees are dazzled by the ladies’ flawless choreography!

The ladies hold their ending pose while Director Jeff Vallier comes onstage to direct the next song.

Assistant Director Jon Ranard gets a break from tickling the ivories as the ladies sing the a’capella tune “Some Kind of Wonderful.”

A few ladies search the crowd to gather special guests for their next tune “I’ve Got a Crush on You.”

Seniors Raylene Schramer and Rachel Lane connect with the Corrosion Conference attendee as they serenade him.

Senior and Purduette Manager Alex Robinson belts out a solo in the soulful tune “Shackles.”

The ladies are excited to debut a new a’capella piece at the Corrosion Conference called “What’ll I Do?” The song is originally a twenties tune written by legendary composer Irving Berlin.

The ladies encourage the audience to clap along as junior Caroline LaDue sings the upbeat tune “I’ve Got the Music in Me.”

Jeff directs the audience to stand for the world’s greatest college fight song, “Hail Purdue!”

The ladies run offstage as the conference concludes. The Purduettes had a wonderful time serenading and mingling with the members of the short course!
