During the high-energy program, members of the Purdue Varsity Glee Club, Purduettes, Purdue Bells, University Choir, Heart & Soul, All Campus & Community Chorale and the PMO Kids Choir, fill the campus' 6,000-seat Elliott Hall of Music with the sights, sounds and spirit of the holidays.

Variety remains the hallmark of any "Purdue Christmas Show" - from humorous pop tunes to glorious choral and instrumental arrangements.

This year's concert features a humorous vignette from "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and crowd-pleasers such as "Deck the Halls," "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and "Santa Claus is Coming to Town."

Purdue Musical Organizations is on Facebook, and you can follow @PurduePMO on Twitter.
