The seventh and eighth grade concert choir sang a variety of music including songs with Spanish, Latin or African influence.

“The music gives the students a chance to learn a little bit about a different language,” said Dunn-Gefroh.

The Mandan Middle School will have their next fall concert series on Monday, Nov. 25 with the eighth graders at the Mandan High School Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. Also, performing are the sixth grade students at the MHS Auditorium on Tuesday, Nov. 26 at 7:30 p.m.
