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 40-60 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.
