The Fargo-Moorhead Symphony Orchestra is putting on a FREE party - actually several parties - for young adults in their 20s and 30s complete with complementary wine tasting and hors d'oeuvres.

Urban Overture is the name of a group for young adults interested in exploring a new concert experience and enjoying informal networking with their peers. 

SYMPHONY 101 Party

Wednesday, November 12 from 5:30 - 7:00
Radisson Hotel, downtown Fargo
Free hors d'oeuvres, wine tasting

FMSO Musicians will perform excerpts of pieces from the upcoming "Along the Silk Road" concert.

PERFORMANCE at September's Urban Overture "Symphony 101" party by ALTURAS DUO (Scott Hill, guitar and Carlos Boltez, Chilean charango) and flutist GONZALO CORTES - These guest soloists performed South American music and talked about the upcoming symphony concerts




Each Wednesday prior to a Masterworks symphony concert, the Urban Overture group hosts a "Symphony 101 Party" at The Radisson Downtown at 5:30 - 7:00 p.m. for an informal gathering to learn more about the weekend's concert offering.  Check out the Urban Overture Photo Gallery here!

Concermaster (first chair violinist) Benjamin Sung is the musical host for each of these events, introducing the conductor and also any FMSO musicians who may be on hand to perform for you.

Each event also includes a brief and informal "Symphony 101" talk about what to expect at a symphony concert, when to applaud (and how the tradition of not aplauding between movements came about) and more - all of this in an informal, cocktail party-style atmosphere.
