This collection features programs from student and faculty concerts, recitals, and ensemble performances, documenting various styles including classical, concert band, opera, choral, and jazz music. Programs for performances by non-affiliated musicians sponsored by Ball State can also be found. Prominently documented performance groups in this collection include the Ball State Symphony Orchestra, the Ball State Jazz Ensemble, the Ball State Concert Choir, and the Ball State Concert Band.

Materials in this collection are full-text searchable, meaning that users can search for programs from performances by specific individuals or of specific musical works.
