WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Purdue University students will showcase their musical talents during an entirely student-produced free rock show at 6:30 p.m. April 7 in Elliott Hall of Music.
Phenomena will feature students from the Purdue Varsity Glee Club, Purduettes, Purdue Bells, University Choir and Heart & Soul performing a wide variety of classic rock, country and hip-hop hits from the past and present. The show will open with a special performance by the Neon Cactus' piano man, Bruce Barker. The concert is open to the public.
"Phenomena is a night of entertainment and spectacle with Purdue students collaborating for a cause with a local, legendary music icon," said Phoenix Lyons, co-producer of the production. "With hits from yesterday and today, this show has something for everyone."
The students will be hosting a food drive at various locations on Purdue's campus the week of the show, and will be taking donations at the door for Food Finders Food Bank of Lafayette.
"Each year Food Finders distributes more than 2.5 million pounds of food to residents in 16 Indiana counties. Phenomena is an exciting and action-packed opportunity to bring attention to such a great cause," said Allison Conrad, chair of philanthropy for the production.
