Center Stage: Purduette Fairway Serenade
Fairway, an All-male Christian Cooperative House, is one of the Purduettes' favorite serenades. Each year they have the opportunity to serenade these wonderful gentlemen who exude hospitality and class. Here the women await the start of dinner and mingle with some members of the house.
The Altos present elegance and enthusiasm in the song "I Hear a Song". This was the first song of the night.
Talented Sophomore Ali Norman gets sassy singing the solo to "Big Noise", a jazzy and upbeat tune.
The ladies let this Fairway gentleman know that they have a "Crush" on him.
The women select a few lucky gentlemen to serenade. Little did the rest of the men know, this was only the first round of personal serenades.
The Purduette Trio, Hannah Burris, Abby Green, and Rachel Lane, swing and sway to "Opus One".
The Flappers also get the audience into the swing of things with "Everybody Loves My Baby".
The Shoops bring the 1960's to life with their tune "Jingle, Jangle". This song involves an air piano, air guitar, air tambourine, and of course the beautiful harmonies of the Shoops.
The Emotions take it up a notch with a rendition of "For the Love of Money".
Katie Peine, a junior from Zionsville, IN, demonstates eloquence and poise in "Dreamgirls".
Manager Emily Gorrell and Assistant Manager Allie Battocletti serenade a Fairway gentleman with "Baby Face".
The men receive another pleasant suprise when they are each personally serenade by the women.
The 2009 Pledge Class of Fairway try their luck at performing for the women. A job well done!
A quartet of Fairway men also steal the stage to perform some sea shanties for the women.
The "Pirates" were a hit and left no audience member unsatisfied. They helped to fill the room with laughter.
As the night started to come to an end, the women were individually presented a rose by the men of Fairway. What a great night consisting of fabulous food (prepared by the men of Fairway), new friends, and the love of music!
