Purdue Musical Organizations to present patriotic performance

October 27, 2011

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The third offering from Embrace the Sound, a Purdue Musical Organizations (PMO) arts series, will be presented Nov. 6.

The Purdue Bells, University Choir, Heart & Soul and All Campus & Community Chorale will perform a collection of patriotic pieces and other selections beginning at 4:30 p.m. at University Church, 320 North St. All performances in the five-part arts series are free and open to the public.

"This will be the final performance for most of these ensembles before our 78th annual Purdue Christmas Show on Dec. 3 and 4," said PMO director Bill Griffel.

More than 250 students perform with PMO annually. Purdue has no school of music, so nearly every academic major is represented in the organization.
