All-Campus & Community Chorale (AC3)

All Campus and Community Chorale standing on stage


Following in the tradition of offering something for everyone and aiming to involve as many individuals as possible within the structure of Purdue Musical Organizations, the All-Campus & Community Chorale (also known as AC3) was started in 2003.

Although other choral music opportunities certainly exist within the Greater Lafayette area, sponsoring a choral ensemble through PMO that provides a place for current and past students – as well as staff and faculty of Purdue and community members at large – to sing has proven to generate much interest.

A wide variety of ages, backgrounds, professions, major areas of study and musical experiences can be found among the 50-60 strong members of this ensemble. Rehearsing one evening per week, AC3 provides a manageable time commitment for participants, while still presenting the possibility of participation in a portion of the Purdue Christmas Show.

Typically, this choir is a combination of students and community members, and they sing a variety of repertoire: everything from Renaissance motets to nonsense songs to Broadway tunes, music from around the world, different cultures and musical styles. 

If you love to sing, and you want a choir that will fit a busy schedule and give you the chance to meet wonderful new friends, then AC3 is the place for you!

This semester, the All-Campus & Community Chorale (AC3) will meet on Tuesday nights from 7-9 p.m. to rehearse in the Smith Room of Bailey Hall, located at 359 Northwestern Avenue, West Lafayette.
