Fargo (WDAY-TV)- This is the first of its kind at Discovery Middle school, It’s a music festival, featuring 16-bands from the area.

Bands from the Metro, Grand Forks, Devils Lake, Moorhead, Wahpeton and beyond, performed every 25-minutes. They were also able to learn about their trade, during clinic sessions from band directors from NDSU, MSUM and Concordia. The "Raging Red" band festival featured several hundred musicians.

John Warren—Concert Festival Coordinator: “It's an opportunity to sit down and listen to what others schools are doing. They have a chance to learn some respect about how other bands play, find out what tunes they enjoyed.”

Gold, silver, and bronze medals were given to outstanding sections and soloists.
