To anyone who is in possession of a wind-up metronome: the Ball State New Music Ensemble is planning a performance of Györgi Ligeti's Poeme Symphonique for 100 metronomes on our October 17 concert in Sursa Hall. We are in need of 90 more mechanical (wind-up) metronomes for this composition. If you have one (or more) that you would be willing to lend the ensemble, I would be happy to come pick it up from you, label it with your name, and return it to you after the concert.

About NOËL The Musical

NOËL is a stunning new holiday musical from top-selling children’s author Eoin Colfer. Set in modern-day London, NOËL tells a heartwarming tale of a little girl who is preparing for her starring role in a school Christmas play when her mother suddenly disappears. To avoid being taken into care, Noël keeps her mother’s disappearance a secret and embarks alone on a quest to find her.

How to Audition

Emens Auditorium is accepting video auditions for the parts of Barnabas (adult male), Emily (adult female), and Cody or Greta (11-14 year old child). Submissions should include a headshot and two-minute video with the following elements:
