April Newsletter

Happy April, Ball State! Spring has (almost) Sprung, and we have some wonderful shows lined up at Emens Auditorium and Pruis Hall this month. We can't wait to see YOU at these awesome events!

Matt Beilis
Apr. 9 at 7:30 p.m.
Pruis Hall

New Yorker Matt Beilis was born with a distinct voice. Some would say it’s unconventional, which would fit the personality of this singer/songwriter/pianist. The songs that Matt has crafted combine his singer-songwriter aesthetic with electronic beats and soaring pop hooks. By choosing his dream over a career on Wall Street, Matt already walked away from a sure thing. Believing 100% in his own talent is the only bet he could make. He’s all in.


Bella Gaia
Apr. 12 at 7:30 p.m.
Emens Auditorium

Bella Gaia (Beautiful Earth) is an unprecedented audio-visual experience that combines NASA satellite imagery of Earth, time-lapse nature photography, and live world music and dance on stage. Inspired by astronauts who spoke of the life-changing power of seeing the Earth from space, director-composer Kenji Williams' award-winning Bella Gaia successfully simulates the Overview Effect from space flight, by using NASA supercomputer data-visualizations with an "iridescent landscape of gossamer melodies and labyrinthine rhythms" (Nooga.com) to explore the relationship between humans and nature through time and space.


Apr. 23 at 7:30 p.m.
Emens Auditorium

Susan Werner: An American in Havana
May 2 at 7:30

A triple threat as a writer, singer, and musician, Werner has been one of the most prolific singer/songwriters in the United States since her 1995 debut. Her iconoclastic concept albums, The Gospel Truth and Hayseed, have won her passionate fans from coast to coast. Her new EP is a collection of original songs inspired by Werner’s recent travels to Cuba and include her trademark songcraft and wry, poetic lyrics.
