Episode 22 – A Virtual Happy Holidays

A grand tradition at Purdue University, the PMO Christmas Show ushers in each holiday season through the gift of song. Due to safety concerns surrounding COVID-19, this year’s 87th annual show, aptly titled “A Different Kind of Christmas,” takes place virtually December 19th and will showcase your favorite PMO musical ensembles. William Griffel, the Albert P. Stewart Director of Purdue Musical Organizations, joins us for a behind-the-scenes look at this free virtual event.   

No holiday season would be complete without a telling of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.” Thanks to Chicago’s world-renowned interdisciplinary performance collective Manual Cinema, the Purdue family can purchase tickets for a live virtual adaptation running December 4th through 13th. We asked Todd Wetzel, executive director of Purdue Convocations, about this festive, visually inventive event for all ages.
