about us
Princeton University Rock Ensemble, or PURE, is the first student rock group at Princeton! We are a completely student-run organization, and anybody, from guitarists to singers to violinists to lighting designers, is welcome. Whether you are a guitarist or drummer looking to rock out, a singer looking to show off your voice, a violinist or horn player who loves rock music, PURE is the group for you! In addition to the traditional rock band instruments, we have a small orchestra and chorus that make our performances even more epic.
PURE performs rock music, ranging from The Beatles to Weezer, Van Halen to Red Hot Chili Peppers. Whatever your tastes, you are sure to find a song in which you will want to perform, and the best part about PURE is: you can be as involved as you want! We're really flexible and if you only have time in your schedule to play in one song, that's great, but if you want to be in a bunch, that's great as well.
You don't have to be a musician to get involved with PURE. We are always looking for lighting designers, sound engineers, and other tech people to help out with our productions, so please contact us for an interview if you're interested.
Whether or not you've ever performed in a band or orchestra, or you just play or sing for fun, come audition for PURE! It's a blast, and we'd love to have you!
