We took part in a "photo shoot" today (in black tie, no less) to promote something you’re going to be hearing a lot about beginning next month, like it or not. The Greater Grand Forks Symphony Orchestra’s Make Me A Maestro contest.
The winner will conduct the symphony in something hard to mess up like "The Stars and
Stripes Forever." It’s going to be very democratic–a buck a vote.
The candidates are Golf Monster and part-time Grand Forks Herald columnist Ryan Bakken, Ginny Bohlman (who is much too nice for a cut-throat competition like this) and yours truly.
Of course, I’d like your vote. The symphony would like your money. So, it will work out.
