Bis/Man Symphony Orchestra Prepares for 4th of July Celebration at Capitol

Posted: Updated:

It's a tradition for many residents of North Dakota to attend the Fourth of July Celebration at the State Capitol.

But you may not know just what it takes to put on this special event.

The Bismarck-Mandan Symphony Orchestra presents the annual Fourth of July Spectacular tomorrow evening beginning at 8pm.

Leading up to the event, many hands are needed to set up the lights, sound system, and prepare the grounds for nearly 7,000 spectators.

The fireworks were brought in and set up today with much more organizing still going on this evening and tomorrow.

Executive Director of the Symphony Bah-vin Shaw says he looks forward to this festive celebration every year.

"I think what I'm looking most forward to is seeing the combination of all the lighting that goes up including the fireworks and just in general getting a chance to kind of reflect on the fact that it's our Independence Day and just hearing some great music and seeing some great fireworks," says Bhavin Shah, Executive Director of the Bismarck-Mandan Symphony Orchestra.

Our very own Tom Gerhardt will also be guest conducting the Bismarck-Mandan Symphony Orchestra as they play The Stars & Stripes Forever.
