Center Stage: Glee Club Camp Day 3
Sir of Merchandise Jacob Ludwig is part of Lighthouse, the Glee Club’s gospel quartet. During regular rehearsals, specialty groups rehearse with Ted Arthur to prepare selections for the year.
To rehearse new numbers, the Glee Club broke off into sections. The second tenors make sure each and every note is refined to perfection.
Greg Sanders helps the basses through their refinement of “Didn’t my Lord Deliver Daniel,” “You Don’t You Won’t,” and “Star Wars”.
Assistant Director Ted Arthur enjoyed his lunch with members of the Glee Club.
Sophomore Tim Harris wards off New Man Jordan Buck and Senior Andy Wirtner with the help of Junior David Maurer during a game of Water Polo.
KERPLUNK! Junior Jacob Ludwig dives into the pool with utmost concentration.
Sophomore Harrison Reiff and Junior Jimmy O’Connor take turns doing tricks off the diving board.
The Glee Club enjoyed an afternoon break in the pool with the Purduettes.
AHHHHHH… Senior Patrick Brown takes a moment to enjoy the cool water with the help of some pool noodles.
A long standing tradition in PMO, Bill Griffel leads the Glee Club and Purduettes in “Be present at our table” before dinner.
YUMMYYY! Students enjoyed a scrumptious dinner including selections of BBQ Chicken, Twice Baked Potatoes, Tortellini, Carrots, Peas, Rolls, and Chocolate Cake. Yes PMO Parents, we are eating well!
The whole Griffel family stopped by Camp T. to visit PMO staff and students. Here Natalie and Bill had a moment to relax while children Wil and Josie were being entertained by members of PMO.
Purdue Musical Organizations was graced by the presence of Anthony Cawdron, event coordinator for President Córdova. He taught members of PMO proper etiquette during meals and generalized manners for dining with guests.
Anthony, who is a former butler for the Queen of England, Prince Charles, and late Princess Diana, was sure to bring along an array of utensils, glasses, and plates for demonstration.
Senior Sir of RRLT, Patrick Brown fulfills his Sir duties by making sure everyone has music for a joint PMO song. The Glee Club and Purduettes practiced two numbers we will be doing with Purdue Bands and the infamous “There will always be a song”.
PMO socializes prior to the joint rehearsal on Wednesday evening.
In an unfortunate change of events due to severe weather, PMO took a hiatus in the middle of rehearsal to regress to the basement for shelter.
Junior and Sir of Advancement, Blake Vogt, did magic tricks for members of PMO to pass the time during the storm.
Wil Griffel had fun during the storm as he colored a picture of Darth Vader.
