This edition of the "Purdue Christmas Show" aims to inspire and entertain viewers of all ages with innovative renditions of sacred and secular holiday standards.
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."
