The Fargo-Moorhead Symphony Orchestra is putting on a FREE party - actually several parties - for young adults in their 20s and 30s complete with complementary wine tasting and hors d'oeuvres. Urban Overture is the name of a group for young adults interested in exploring a new concert experience. Each Wednesday prior to a Masterworks symphony concert, the Urban Overture group will meet at Studio 222 (222 Broadway in downtown Fargo, next door to Atomic Coffee) from 5:30pm-7:00pm for an informal gathering to learn more about the weekend's concert offering. FMSO Concertmaster Benjamin Sung will present an informal "Symphony 101" talk about the music, what to expect at a symphony concert, when to applaud (and how the tradition of not aplauding between movements came about) and more. This year is a fun and exciting time for the Symphony and for our community because of the Conductor Search Season.  Out of the hundreds of applicants who have applied to be the new Music Director of the Orchestra, only 5 have been selected through a rigorous process. Each of the Masterworks Performances throughout this season will be an intense and exciting opportunity to judge the "FM Symphony's Next Music Director!" If you attend these informal events before each concert, you will have the opportunity to listen to several professional musicians from the orchestra, meet new concertgoers and have your questions answered in an informal, cocktail party-style atmosphere. REGISTER TO BECOME A MEMBER OF URBAN OVERTURE - IT'S FREE! Simply send an e-mail to urbanoverture@fmsymphony.org with your NAME and BIRTHDATE, and you will receive an e-mail confirmation with your personal code that you can use to order discounted concert tickets. ■FREE Networking/Symphony 101 pre-concert Wednesday evening events ■FREE Wine Tasting and Hors D'oeuvres (cash bar also available) ■FREE Membership via e-mail registration ■$10 Masterworks Concert Tickets (a savings of $21 or more per ticket)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
