Purdue Varsity Glee Club at the Lerner
The Purdue Club of Elkhart County Foundation is excited to once again be bringing the world-famous Purdue Varsity Glee Club to The Lerner Theater on September, 17. This is the major fund-raiser of the Foundation, so that scholarships can be awarded to students from Elkhart and LaGrange Counties who are attending Purdue University, with most recently over $23,000 being awarded to qualified students. Recent Elkhart county graduates of Goshen High School (Joel Byler) and Fairfield (Austin Erb) are current members and featured soloists of the Glee Club. A dynamic program of music of all types will be presented, but audiences are continually amazed that Purdue does not have a School of Music – Glee Club members major in all types of challenging academics including engineering, pharmacy, education, agriculture, business, etc. Joining the Glee Club on stage this year will be the award-winning mixed concert choir from Northridge High School – Lyric Lights. This will be an afternoon you won’t want to miss.
