Hey good morning.

Right now i'm standing on the stage where hundreds of students will perform for this year's annual christmas show this weekend.

This show features ensemble performance from pmo groups, including the glee club, heart & soul, university choir, purdue bells and purduettes.

But the biggest act is the cantada, where all pmo performers come together for the second act of the show.

What many people don't know is this a year-long production.

Every year, preparations for the christmas show begin in january.

Staff members choose songs for each group, and rehearsals begin in the fall.

The christmas show is a staple at purdue.
