Celebrating music of all genres with a vast repertoire including pop, classical, contemporary, country, swing, patriotic, Broadway, gospel and jazz, this multi-talented troupe of alto and soprano voices represents the brightest and best from a variety of majors and areas of study.
Known for an ever-polished and professional look and style, the
Purduettes from Purdue Musical Organizations consistently highlight the
considerable musical talents of the more than 60 vocalists through full
ensemble selections as well as small group and solo presentations.
Founded in 1942, and having celebrated their 75th anniversary in 2017,
the Purduettes have inspired audiences around the globe. The ensemble
has performed throughout Canada, Austria, Germany, Switzerland,
France, Costa Rica, and travels to Italy in 2020. While in Italy, the Purduettes will have the opportunity to perform during mass at Saint Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican.
Maintaining a high level of academic achievement, the Purduettes pursue excellence on and off the stage, employing a leadership honorary and a mentor program to help further the development and lives of each individual, while involving Purdue alumni and community leaders through the outreach efforts of the program.
Directed by Jeff Vallier, the Purduettes provide energetic and quality entertainment suitable for audiences of all ages and backgrounds, all the while connecting the university to alumni, friends and communities worldwide.
