Weekend Watch: Classical Music Festival
There are country festivals and blues festivals and rock festivals, but it’s the Classical Music Festival on Sunday that starts the toes tapping this summer with a mix of family-friendly music at Rheault Farm, 2902 25th St. S., Fargo. The tunes start at 1 p.m. with the Lake Agassiz Concert Band, followed on the hour by FM Kicks Big Band, FM Chamber Chorale and finally the FM Symphony Orchestra at 4:30. More interactive events like a performance by Penny and Pals at 1:30 and a Music Listening Contest at 2:30 take place in the barn, while an art workshop, an instrument petting zoo and journey through jazz take place elsewhere on the grounds until the day ends at 6. The event is free. (701) 499-7788.
