Next up was the Purdue Shaker Chimes Ensemble. Utilizing a set of antique Shaker Chimes, this trio of talented students showcases this rare and unique instrument through a wide variety of musical styles. You must see it to believe it!
After the Shaker Chimes, Lighthouse from the Purdue Varsity Glee Club entertained with "Turn Your Radio On," "Shout Glory," "Low Down the Chariot" and "Noah Found Grace in the Eyes of the Lord."
After a deep breath, Glee Club sophomore and computer science major Austin Rauschuber sustains a note during "Noah Found Grace in the Eyes of the Lord."
After Lighthouse, the Cowgrils from the Purduettes entertained with "Cowboy Take Me Away," "Leave the Pieces," "Somebody Bigger" and "Gone, Gone, Gone."
