Center Stage: Purduettes Fall Break Day 1
The Purduettes debuted their new Gold tops at Harrison High School, their first Fall Break stop.
Clarice Masaki, Purduettes' Sound Technician, is responsible for sound balance and quality at almost every Purduette show. Here she takes a break from sound check at Harrison High School to smile for the camera with Brittainy Reiff, a Senior Purduette and Gold Emeritus.
The ladies serenade a few Raider gentlemen from the audience.
Allie Rieth imitates the sound of the trumpet in The Flappers tune "Everybody Loves My Baby".
The Purduettes also were fortunate enough to get the opportunity to sing at McCutcheon High School. What a fantastic experience!
The Shoops perform their new song "Jingle, Jangle" by The Archies for Harrison.
Jeff Vallier asks the student audience about what makes the Purduettes a professional and unique ensemble. He presented scenarios where the women were not maintaing eye contact, not exuding proper posture, and not smiling. This really helped the students to understand the importance of all these factors in which the Purduettes pride themselves on and the benefits of incorporating them in a performance in order to pull off a successful show.
Freshman Katie Persenaire, Junior Tina Tzinares, Senior Amanda Conte, and Sophomore Sara Erwin smile as they hit their ending position in "Big Noise".
Senior and Manager of the Purduettes Emily Gorrell sings a heartful and powerful rendition of "God Bless America".
The Purduettes received a delicious lunch from parent helpers at McCutcheon. They then got to hear McCutcheon's top female chorus ensemble and were very impressed!
