The ensembles of Purdue Musical Organizations come together to put on this Christmas spectacular each year. There are three shows scheduled for Saturday and one on Sunday.

Saturday's show times are at noon, 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. The show on Sunday is scheduled for 2 p.m.

There will be five different singing ensembles and a handbell choir performing this year. Sam Humphrey is performing in the Christmas show for the last time with the Purdue Varsity Glee Club. He said this show will be the best visually and feature the best music in his four years.

"The music is absolutely fantastic," said Humphrey. "All the groups are sounding really great. There's a lot of really good diversity musically there so, it's gonna be great."

Humphrey has been putting in effort and rehearsing for this show since September.

"Seeing all that effort come together and personally getting something right that I was previously getting wrong or something like that and seeing it all come together and getting 300 people to work together on stage is absolutely phenomenal," said Humphrey.

A special matinee performance of the Christmas show is being held for elementary school students Friday afternoon. This helps the performers practice in front of an audience before Saturday and Sunday as well as let local school children experience the excitement of the show.

Tickets can be purchased online and before the show at the Elliott Hall of Music box office.
