What music could describe Minot better than music depicting life in the prairies? Join us as we survey beloved western music. Aaron Copland captured the American spirit in Rodeo. Relive classic cowboy films when we bring you Dances With Wolves by John Barry and The Wild, Wild West by Richard Markowitz, along with the unforgettable theme to the Magnificent 7 by Elmer Bernstein. The concert will also debut Prologue, written by Minot native, Erik Mychal Anderson, the winner of our Young Composer competition.
