WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Purdue Convocations presents Toronto-based vocal group Choir! Choral! Choral! conduct three reunion week songs at the Slayter Center for the Performing Arts.
Led by Creative Directors Nobu Adilman and Daveed Goldman, the duo take a non-traditional approach; there are no auditions and the audience is the choir. Each of the themed performances will feature an original arrangement of a song the audience will know and love.
The premiere performance at 7:30 pm Thursday (September 30) will feature the theme âThe Beatles Jukeboxâ. At 6 p.m. Friday (Oct. 1), Choir! Choral! Choral! presents “Don’t Stop Believin ‘in the’ 80s” before the Purdue Homecoming Parade. At 9 pm after the parade, the duo will conduct the theme song “I Want It That 2000s Pop Way”. Each of the three performances at the Slayter Center is free and open to the public
Founded in 2011, Chorale! Choral! Choral! has amassed a community of dedicated and passionate singers and a thriving international fan base on YouTube, with tens of millions of views on some of his videos. The group has performed with renowned artists such as Patti Smith, David Byrne, Rick Astley, Tegan and Sara and Rufus Wainwright, and on stage in New York‘s Carnegie Hall and Radio City Music Hall with artists like Debbie Harry and The Flaming Lips.
âBlurring the line between artist and audience, Choir! Choral! Choral! reminds us of the pleasure and power that comes from pooling our voices, âsaid Todd Wetzel, executive director of Purdue Summons. As Purdue alumni and friends take giant leaps home after a long hiatus, these three joyous performances will be a wonderful closing to our fall outdoor series before we announce our return to indoor events on October 7. “
