The public is invited to attend a free patriotic concert, "National Parks: Our National Treasures," performed by the West River Winds and assisted by a community chorus on Friday, July 1 at 7:30 p.m. This concert, in partnership with the State Historical Society of North Dakota, will take place at the North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum’s outdoor Prairie Amphitheater near the east entrance in Bismarck. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets as no seating is provided.
The "National Parks: Our National Treasures" concert will be directed by John Darling of the West River Winds with assistance from Abelardo Flores, as well as Bismarck-Mandan Civic Chorus director Tom Porter.
