Center Stage: Glee Club Spring Break Day 7
The Glee Club traveled to Barron Collier High School Friday morning to have a convocation for students involved in band, choir, and music appreciation.
Many high school girls were very surprised when the men of PVGC came and sang to them during the run out song.
Ba-na-na made a certain birthday girl at Barron Collier feel very special with their rendition of “Earth Angel."
Some of the Seniors talked with some members of the BC choirs about college life and the benefits of having a college education at Purdue enhanced by the PMO experience. p>
Assistant Director of the Glee Club, Ted Arthur, grabs some of the wonderful lunch that was provided by the Barron Collier choral department. p>

The women of Barron Collier’s group, Bel Canto, performed a few numbers for the Glee Club after lunch.<
The men of the PVGC sang BCHS’s rendition of the song “Unity” with the students of the choral department. This is the song that has come to unite the Barron Collier choral community and is the tune with which they finish every show. The PVGC would like to thank the students and staff of BCHS for our continued relationship and hope to soon return to Barron Collier High School. p>

Just prior to 10:30 P.M. the Purdue Varsity Glee Club departed RP for West Lafayette. The Glee Club would like to thank the PMO Staff, parents, our host families, and friends of PMO who made this trip an unforgettable experience. Without your support and care, the Glee Club and PMO ensembles would be unable to have great opportunities such as this! Hail Purdue! p>
