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.


Violinist CHEE-YUN to make special appearance at Urban Overture

Wednesday, April 9 at 5:30 pm
RADISSON HOTEL, downtown Fargo
Free to adults age 21-39 with ID

The URBAN OVERTURE group for young adults will end its season with a SPECIAL EVENT at the Radisson Hotel in downtown Fargo. Members of the Chamber's Young Professionals Network will be joining UO members to hear a special, informal solo performance and chat by violinist CHEE-YUN, who is flying into Fargo a day early specifically for this event.

The event begins with an informal social at 5:30 featuring wine tasting by Bernie's Wines & Liquor and hors d'oeuvres by Radisson Fargo. Beginning at 6:00, Music Director Chris Zimmerman and Concertmaster Benjamin Sung will introduce CHEE-YUN, who will perform short violin solos and chat about her upcoming performance as our symphony soloist.


Each Wednesday prior to a Masterworks symphony concert, the Urban Overture group hosts a "Symphony 101 Party" at Studio 222 (222 Broadway in downtown Fargo, next door to Atomic Coffee) 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.
