Prep singers and band performers slated for Northern Plais Music Festival at DSU

Dickinson State University (DSU) welcomes the public to attend the 59th annual Northern Plains Music Festival Grand Concert Saturday, Nov. 12, at 4 p.m. in Dorothy Stickney Auditorium.
Featuring a women’s choir, mixed choir, concert band, and percussion ensemble, this year’s Grand Concert is guaranteed to excite and impress all in attendance.
Nearly 160 high school students from North Dakota, South Dakota, and Montana will practice together at various locations on campus Friday, Nov. 11, and perform their selections for the audience the next day.
Conducting the students include: Dr. Lorraine Fader and Dr. Brent Rogers, assistant professors of music at Dickinson State, Mark Herold of Bismarck Legacy High School, and Tim Campbell from the University of South Dakota.
Participating in the festival presents a unique opportunity for students, both to meet other students and professors and to discover options available to them for continuing their education at Dickinson State.
“Many of the students that audition for these ensembles come from very small schools,” said Dr. Jeremy Wohletz, assistant professor of music at Dickinson State and organizer of the festival.
“It is a wonderful opportunity for them to work and perform with a larger ensemble of students that share their passion for music,” he said.
The cost of attendance for this event is $5 per person, and children ages 17 and under are free. For more information, contact Jeremy Wohletz at 701-483-2308 or jeremy. wohletz@dickinsonstate. edu.
