Hundreds of music students set for Palladium debut

The biggest concert in the history of the Ball State University School of Music will take place Sunday at the Palladium, and judging by news accounts, the students are stoked about performing in the Center’s elegant concert hall.

“When I Googled images of it, I was speechless,” graduate student Kelci Kosin told Ball State Magazine. The soprano will be one of the vocal soloists when BSU’s Combined Choirs and Symphony Orchestra are joined by the Indianapolis Children’s Choir for the second-half performance of Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana.

The Masterworks Concert at 3 p.m. Sunday, which kicks off with the Ball State Wind Ensemble, will be the first ever to include all of the School of Music’s performing groups, Director Ryan Hourigan said. The choirs alone comprise more than 200 students.

“It will be a different audience with a different set of expectations, but it couldn’t get any better than this for our students,” he told the magazine. “The Palladium is probably the most professional space most have had the opportunity to perform in.”
