Center Stage: Glee Club in Rochester
The Gentlemen of the Glee Club were greeted at Grace United Methodist Church in Rochester, IN with a wonderful breakfast of Orange juice and donuts.
Lighthouse warmed up in the morning sun pouring through the stain-glass windows. The men of PVGC listened intently during their sound check to great tunes like “At the Feet of Jesus”.
Although it was an early morning call time, the Glee Club was well-prepared upon arrival to be ready to praise in song. Here, Bill continues to “warm-up” the group.
Juniors , Jimmy O’Connor and John Lindstrom, start the worship service with the powerful song, “Cry Out and Shout”.
The congregation of Grace UMC thoroughly enjoyed the Glee Club’s addition to the worship service. Here, the men of the PVGC sing “Praise to the Lord the Almighty”.
The house has “officially” been brought down. Lighthouse got the crowd energized with their arrangement of “Great Day”.
Tyler Ellis, Junior from Stow, OH, sings the solo during the song, “Lord, where is our freedom?”
In light of the current troubles in our world, the Glee Club sang “Tribute to World Peace”. Senior Kyle Sutton sings about joining in “One Voice ” in this photo.
The members of Grace UMC nearly jumped to their feet as the Glee Club ended the show with power and praise in the three song combined ending of the “Tribute”.
The Pastor of Grace UMC was extremely grateful to the Glee Club for their performance and worship at the show. The Glee Club would also like to thank the staff and congregation at Grace UMC for the hospitality and opportunity to sing at such a wonderful venue.

Setting up for a show with speed was crucial, and with time constraints, the Properties Committee never fails to kick it up a notch.
The specialty Voiceovers sang a relatively new song, “Fireflies,” by Owl City as one of its few numbers that evening.
Here was the Glee Club as it performed “You Don’t, You Won’t,” one of PVGC’s favorites. Everyone applauded the energy and musical vigor of the beginning charts.
Tyler Ellis, a Junior, serenades this rather pleased-looking woman to the song “Life Could Be a Dream.”
The instrumentalists are jamming away—and look at that focus! Great ensembles need great accompaniments, after all.
After the show, many people talked about their favorite parts of the show as they bought Glee Club merchandise.
The school mascot is a Zebra, it seems. Right in the middle of two merging hallways resides this life-sized zebra in a glass case.
Before the Glee Club departed, Manager Jim Giberson informed an interested woman of some important information of the Glee Club.
