The Honeywell Center will present the Ball State University Singers on Friday, March 29, at 7:30 p.m. This concert is part of the Wabash Valley Music Association Series, presented by Parkview Wabash Hospital. Tickets are $35, $25 and $15.

Fifty-five years ago, the Indiana General Assembly elevated Ball State Teacher’s College to the status of “University.” In anticipation of the event, a new musical organization under founding director Don Neuen was created in honor of the University.

The current cast of twenty-two singers, thirteen instrumentalists, five technicians, five wardrobe technicians and a graduate assistant is under the direction of Dr. Alan Alder. At home, across the state and around the world, the group is known as Indiana’s Official Goodwill Ambassadors. They have performed and captivated audiences all over the world, and hold the title of the World’s Number One Collegiate Entertainment Organization.

Alan Alder is a faculty member of the School of Music at Ball State University, where he serves as producer/director of the University Singers, Indiana’s Official Goodwill Ambassadors, and teaches Music History. Under Dr. Alder’s direction, the Ball State University Singers won the gold medal at the World Choir Games making them the World’s Number One Collegiate Entertainment Organization. In November of 2012, the University Singers also won the platinum medal at the Xinghai International Choral Championships in Guangzhou, China, making them the most awarded collegiate entertainment group in competition history. Alder also serves on the faculty of Ivy Tech State College as a professor of Humanities.

Tickets are available for purchase online at or by calling the Honeywell Foundation Box Office at (260) 563-1102.
