The Bemidji Symphony Orchestra and its conductor, Beverly Everett, have been named finalists in The American Prize spring 2010 competitions in orchestral performance and orchestral conducting.

Through a series of competitions, the Bemidji Symphony was singled out, the chief judge noting "...a grand performance of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony - a sterling example of everything a community's music-making should encompass."

Way to go Bemidji!
