This event will begin with rehearsals on Thursday, October 24, and will end with an afternoon concert on Saturday, October 26.

Students will have the opportunity to perform a show choir set with other students from across the great state of Indiana, under the direction of two nationally-known educators: Paul Gulsvig (vocals) and Stephen Todd (choreography).

Important information to consider about the audition process:

  • Only the top 40 students will be accepted
  • A proposed $50 registration fee will be required per accepted student
  • Students should use the tutorial videos above for their audition
  • Vocal and choreography auditions must be submitted online
  • A director or authorized chaperone must be in attendance throughout the duration of the weekend’s festivities
  • Participants are responsible for securing their own hotel accommodations
  • Some meals will be “on your own” on Purdue’s campus

Rehearsals will begin Thursday evening during which PMO will provide a group meal for directors/chaperones and students.

Friday, we will host all-day rehearsals with intermittent performance breaks by various PMO ensembles. 

Saturday will begin with rehearsals and end with a 1:30 pm performance that is open to the public. Ticket information for the concert is forthcoming.

PMO is thrilled to offer this opportunity to Indiana high school students. Please direct any questions to Scott Hines, PMO Assistant Director, at hines29@purdue.edu.
