I was a season ticket holder for 11 years until the new conductor arrived. His program selection is poor, usually the Composers Of Britain's Greatest Hits. Hopefully this will change sometime soon.

I try to see the Symphony at least once a year. They have many different venues they play, and I especially love their Christmas Concert!

The FM Symphony is the best in the state. It attracts the faculties of the three Universities from Fargo Moorhead, plus their best students plus the best players in the region. Performances are on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. Definitely worth attending if you're in the area.

The symphony hosts different events to attract families...one that we went to was Pops and Popcorn at Concordia. Not recommended for children with short attention spans, but this is good entertainment...not just sitting a listening to good music.
