The Sounds of Music

While some people might find the familiar whistle of a meadowlark sweet music to the ears, others prefer bass-thumping and screaming guitars to solitude. Fortunately, North Dakota is large enough to accommodate sounds that are music to everyone’s ears, from the aforementioned nature to local bandshells, concerts, musicals and outdoor music festivals. Go to North Dakota Tourism for a listing of events that includes your favorite musical acts. Many large acts fill up fast, so book your tickets now. Check ahead to make sure the events have not been postponed or canceled.
