Purdue Christmas Show
Virtual Event: December 19th, 2020
Elliott Hall of Music, Purdue University
712 3rd Street, West Lafayette, IN 47907
Description: The Purdue Christmas Show, which was begun in 1933, takes place in the Edward C. Elliott Hall of Music. The show is made up of performances by the Varsity Glee Club, the Purduettes, University Choir, Heart and Soul, Purdue Kids Choir and the All Campus and Community Chorale.
Due to the increasing safety concerns of the COVID-19 pandemic and the University’s response to limit in-person classes after Thanksgiving, PMO will not be able to produce the traditional Christmas Show format that hundreds of thousands of audience members have come to know and love over the past 87 years.
However, the PMO staff are hard at work creating an alternative virtual performance so that our students still have the opportunity to perform this holiday season. This virtual production will be recorded throughout the fall semester and will be available to view on Saturday, Dec. 19, 2020. This year’s virtual performance, which for now is aptly titled “A Different Kind of Christmas”, the PMO staff hopes that alumni, supporters and friends will be able to “tune in” with a celebratory spirit of embracing new traditions and trying new things.
