Center Stage: Glee Club in Goshen
The Glee Club arrived in Goshen, Indiana and immediately began to set up equipment for the show. Robert Lechner and Aaron Bourdage, two freshmen, were placed in charge of assembling the drum set.
A new specialty group called the “Flashbacks” warmed up and tested its sound in the auditorium.
Freshman Christopher Soverns worked with the wiring arrangement for the stage microphones to ensure that the group’s sound will ring out through the audience.
The director of Goshen’s high school choir, Marcia Yost, received a small token of appreciation signed by every member of PVGC.
Daniel Gardiner ran some of the technical parts of sound setup, including part balancing, preventing feedback, and maximizing projection of rich sound.
After preparing the essentials for the show, the group was led to the school cafeteria where a full, delicious meal was provided by the Purdue Alumni Club of Elkhart County. Members of this club went to different tables, introducing themselves.
Announcements about events of the Purdue Alumni Club were briefly made, along with a detailed explanation of what the organization does.
The show began at half past seven, and the Glee Club ran up, enthusiastic as always, to the stage. John Lindstrom, a junior, is performing is solo in “American River Suite”
Nathan Wilkins serenaded this lucky woman right before the show’s intermission with the famous run-out number, “Life could be a dream.”
Freshman Robert Lechner is shown here, and as he introduced himself to the President of the Purdue Alumni Club, he explained some important things about traditions of the Glee Club.
