Attendees are invited to arrive early and enjoy a meal in the Howatt Hangar at Frost Fire Park.

The show features the starring local actress and teacher, Misti Koop, of East Grand Forks, who will perform “some old favorites that will keep your toes tapping and let your heart smile,” according to the promotional material
The songs will include “Fly Me to the Moon,” “Rocky Top,” “Yakety Yak,” “Don’t It Make Your Brown Eyes Blue,” “Don’t Fence Me In,” the Armed Forces’ service songs, and much more.
Admission is a free will offering.
Koop, a well-known and popular performer in area theater productions, said the concert will feature “some of my favorite songs to sing -- many I sang in Medora on the patio with the band from the (Medora) Musical in town each week.”
The program includes songs from genres such as country, jazz, easy listening, patriotic, show tunes and others, she said. “Something for everyone, for sure.”
Instrumental accompanists are Amy Jo Paukert, piano; Jeff Anvinson, guitar and bass; and Spencer Black, drums and bass, said Koop, who teaches K-12 music at Minto (N.D.) Public School.
