Dakota Chamber Music

Posted: Updated:

For the 17th year in a row, music lovers made their way to Minot State University for the Dakota Chamber Music.

The week long event brings a range of artists from students to professionals to do what they love.

Most of the artists are from North Dakota, but some traveled from the surrounding states and Canada to play with their peers.

Around 55-60 people showed up for the week long event, which is an increase from years past.

This year Chamber Music involved wind instruments, something never offered in prior years.

Seven faculty members volunteer to better educate the interested artists.

One of those faculty members is Erik Anderson, and he believes chamber music can help someone become a better person.

(Erik Anderson, Director, Dakota Chamber Music) "The great thing about chamber music is it encourages, it fosters all the best things about learning to be independent. Learning to solve problems, learning to present publicly, learning to come up with your own interpretation and then present that in front of others in a collaborative fashion."

The week long event will end with three concerts.

Friday night is the featured faculty concert and students perform Saturday night and Sunday afternoon.
