Center Stage: PMO and Purdue Bands Collaboration

 

Glee Club

The Purdue Bands and Purdue Musical Organizations joined for a fall concert at the Long Center in Lafayetee. This marks the first concert in the recent past with the two organizations, breaking a long dry spell of bringing the talents of PMO and Purdue Bands together. Here, a few Purduettes watch the Purdue Concert Band as they warm up.
