Hundreds of students gathered for a kind of 'wedding' at Mankato West Auditorium Friday morning. Kenneth Freed and The Mankato Symphony joined guest artists, Brent Michael Davids and the Maza Kute Drummers for the annual Youth Concert. The music was a 'marriage 'of traditional Native American and classical instrumentation.
'Powwow Symphony' used elements of a real powwow. Plus, an emcee who told jokes to the audience of 4th, 5th, and 6th graders.
