LETTER FROM PMO DIRECTOR

Dear friends,

I hope you will help us celebrate the 80th anniversary of PMO and the Purdue Christmas Show as you reconnect with fellow alumni and visit with current students, staff and Advisory Board members during our Alumni Reception. All the details about the reception can be found below in the ALUMNI RECEPTION section.

Keeping with tradition, all PMO alumni are encouraged to take the stage to help lead our Carol Sing immediately following the first act of the show. This year, during the Carol Sing of the 8pm performance on Saturday, alumni will be featured during a special Alumni Performance of an original arrangement of “The Sound of Christmas” that has been dedicated to our PMO Alumni. This special performance will take place before we close our Carol Sing with “Silent Night.”

If you have already purchased or plan to purchase your tickets for the 8pm performance on Saturday, I invite you to join us for a brief rehearsal during the reception at approximately 7pm. The rehearsal will be led by PMO Assistant Director Jeff Vallier. Please familiarize yourself with “The Sound of Christmas” in advance of the performance. Sheet music and “part tapes” can be found below in the ALUMNI PERFORMANCE section.

If you are not able to join us, I encourage you to stay engaged with PMO by following along with us online and connecting with us when we are on the road. And the next time you make it back to campus, I invite you to come to a rehearsal and get a behind-the-scenes look at today’s talented students hard at work!

Take care, happy holidays and Hail Purdue!

Bill Griffel, Director
Purdue Musical Organizations
