Center Stage: Glee Club at Vet Med Conference
Senior Jeremy Chance and Junior Josh Getto enjoy a little daily news from the Purdue Exponent prior to warming up for the show.
Before every show in the Purdue Memorial Union, the gentlemen of the Glee Club meet up in the “TV room” to warm up, and in the down time, socialize. They also abide by the rule that early is on time, on time is late, and late is left behind.
Bill introduces the Glee Club at this annual event. This performance was quite a special occasion, as it was School of Veterinary Medicine’s 50th anniversary. The Glee Club thanks the School for all those invites back over the years.
The Boiler Boys once again charm the crowd with their Frankie Valli tunes. Oh, how those ladies always melt!
Assistant Director, Ted Arthur, taps the ivories as his hands zip across the keyboard. Play it Ted!
The Glee Club always likes to cater to its audience. This song, Mississippi Squirrel Revival, featured Senior and Sir Emeritus Andy Seibert and told the story of a critter getting loose in the "First Self Righteous Church". Another musical number during this performance about animals involved a story of the first Veterinarian, Noah. The tune was none other than “De animals a comin’”.
Senior Aaron Strand swoons one of the ladies at the conference during the run out song. This is always one of the favorite parts of the show for the audience.
Junior Ben Kline also belts the song, “Slow boat to China” during his time with this lovely young lady.
As always, the Glee Club ends a show to the sound of “Hail Purdue”. Again, Congratulations to the School of Veterinary Medicine and may you have many more great years of teaching and healing at Purdue!
