The sounds of saxophones are filling the halls at Minot State University's music department this weekend.
A saxophone conference is going on - and some top saxophonists from the country will take center stage Saturday night as the Minot Symphony Orchestra wraps up its season.
It's the annual pops concert for the Symphony and will feature many numbers familiar to most people.
This is the conclusion of new Symphony Director Scott Seaton's first season in charge of the Minot Symphony.
He says having special guests to join the symphony will be a treat.
(Scott Seaton, Symphony Director) "We have a lot of great soloists from all over the country combining solo saxophone works with ensemble saxophone works from the past several decades including a lot of big band music, we have a tribute to Henry Mancini and a lot of other fun things. We're also doing a tribute to the armed forces which is sort of a tradition now in Minot to do that on the last concert."
Saturday's Symphony performance also includes a solo by our own Tim Olson who won the Minot State University senior honors competition for the chance to sing with the symphony.
Tickets are available at the door for the 7:30 Saturday night performance.
The concert is preceeded by a free pre-concert lecture by cellist Dr. Erik Anderson at 6:30.
