As Purdue University celebrates its 150th anniversary, Purdue Musical Organizations’ annual Christmas Show celebrates its 85th year this weekend. This year, the popular holiday event will be straying from a traditional Christmas theme, and will instead focus on paying homage to a few notable Purdue alumni.
Dozens of verdant holiday wreaths neatly adorn the walls inside Purdue University’s Elliott Hall of Music—only one of numerous preparations that have been made for Purdue Musical Organizations’ 85th Annual Christmas Show.
Each holiday season, the PMO Christmas Show has a theme. This year, like many activities at the school, it’s being aligned with Purdue University’s 150th anniversary.
