Ball State Chamber & Concert Choirs
January 17 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
As part of the Indiana Music Educators Association Professional Development Conference being held in Fort Wayne, First Presbyterian Church will host several concerts which are open to the public without charge. The Ball State University Chamber and Concert Choirs will be performing in our sanctuary at 11:00am on Friday, January 17.
With approximately four hundred students in the Ball State University School of Music, the choral area includes six choirs involving over two hundred students. The Chamber Choir and Concert Choir have two distinct memberships but frequently combine for performances, including choral/symphonic repertoire on and off campus. Both choirs provide undergraduate and graduate student singers experience with a complete range of choral repertoire from the sixteenth to the twenty-first centuries, including numerous world premiere performances. Recent engagements include collaborations with professional orchestras, such as the Fort Wayne Philharmonic Orchestra, and community choirs, plus masterclasses or performances with choral artists such as Voces8, Eric Whitacre, and The Rose Ensemble.
