Purdue Varsity Glee Club
With integrity, passion, unparalleled showmanship and attention to every detail, the men of the Purdue Varsity Glee Club have proudly served as ambassadors of the university with honor and dignity for more than 115 years.
Under the direction of William Griffel, the Purdue Varsity Glee Club continues to share a sound all its own through one-of-a-kind arrangements in tailor-made performances for audiences of all ages.
Celebrating music of all genres with a vast repertoire including pop, classical, contemporary, country, swing, patriotic, Broadway, gospel and jazz, this multi-talented troupe of women represents the brightest and best from a variety of majors and areas of study.
Known for an ever- polished and professional look and style, the Purduettes consistently showcase the considerable musical talents of the 50-60 vocalists through full ensemble selections as well as small groups and solo presentations.
Founded in 1942, the original Purduettes heartily fulfilled previously-booked appearances of the Purdue Varsity Glee Club when the onset of World War II depleted the Glee Club’s roster. Since then, the Purduettes have continued performing for community, university, corporate, business, private, government, alumni, arts and school events throughout the state of Indiana and beyond.
