WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Purdue’s Varsity Glee Club will take to the steps of Hovde Hall for its second annual “Encore” performance at 7 p.m. Thursday (Oct. 29).
In this casual concert, the men will sing a variety of A Capella tunes. And in this relaxed atmosphere, attendees will get a sense of not only the group’s musicianship, but how much fun the group has when singing together.
“These guys just really love to sing,” said William Griffel, PMO and Glee Club director. “In this type of casual outdoor venue, we like to showcase some of our more fun numbers and really get the audience to see just how much fun these men can have.”
The Glee Club performs a vast repertoire of musical styles, including barbershop, gospel, vocal jazz, contemporary hits and classical choral selections.
Nearly 300 students perform with PMO annually. Purdue has no school of music, so nearly every academic major is represented in the organization.
