Center Stage: PMO Spring Show
The sound check prior to the show was quickly completed, and PMO Assistant Director Jon Ranard is shown here directing where the technical improvements needed to be made.
The show had begun, and the ensemble Heart & Soul started the show with a smile.
Heart & Soul members continued their performance with electrifying confidence and musicianship. Congratulations to Allen DeSchepper on his selection as the Heart & Soul Member of the Year!
The Purdue Bells began their segment of the show, featuring the Shaker Chimes.
The members of the Purdue Bells performed a variety of song choices, which even included a medley of tunes from Disney's The Lion King.
PMO Assistant Director Jeff Vallier charismatically introduced and directed the All Campus & Community Chorale for their part in the concert.
The University Choir lined up and prepared to enter the sanctuary of the church as soon as their turn came.
Director of PMO, Bill Griffel, directed the University Choir and the group covered many different styles of choral music.
Bill Griffel called forth all of the performing ensembles to sing “Hail Purdue” as the show drew to a close.
As the audience mingled with the performers, Courtney Petro and JoAnna Rogowski posed for a picture, as it was the last time they would wear their University Choir attire that year.
Congratulations to Susan Wang, this year's student manager of Purdue Bells and recipient of the 2010 Outstanding Ringer Award.
