WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - More than 250 students in Purdue Musical Organizations are preparing for the end of another season.

"Besides the Purdue Christmas Show, each ensemble's end-of-season show is one of the most memorable for our student performers," said Bill Griffel, director of Purdue Musical Organizations. "Each of these shows will be the final PMO performance for the seniors and features some of their favorite repertoire from their experiences with our program.''

The Purduettes will present their Spring Spectacular at 7:30 p.m. Saturday (April 21) at the Long Center for the Performing Arts, 111 N. Sixth St., Lafayette. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students and are on sale through PMO at 765-494-3941.

On Sunday (April 22), the Purdue Bells, University Choir, Heart & Soul and All Campus & Community Chorale will perform a free concert at 4:30 p.m. at University Church, 320 North St., West Lafayette.

The Purdue Varsity Glee Club will perform at 7:30 p.m. May 12 at the Long Center. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students and are on sale through PMO.

All performances are open to the public. Each ensemble is one of a variety of performance opportunities within Purdue Musical Organizations. Purdue has no school of music, so nearly every academic major is represented in the organization.
