It turned out to be a beautiful Sunday evening for Northlanders to listen to a concert in the park.

Three choral ensembles performed in Duluth at the Leif Erikson Park as part of Classical MPR's "Harmony in the Park" festival. The evening was filled with songs performed by Twin Ports Choral Project, Lake Superior Youth Chorus, and Echoes of Peace Choir. They represented Minnesota's choral tradition as this type of music is a treasured part of the state's culture.

Food and beverages were provided by Fitger's Brewhouse.
