BISMARCK (AP) - School, community and church musical groups in North Dakota can apply this month to be the official state band or orchestra and the official state chorus.
Gov. Jack Dalrymple is seeking applications through Oct. 26. He and first lady Betsy Dalrymple then will select the official groups based on musical talent, achievement and community involvement.
The governor's state band and chorus might be invited to perform at state functions during the year.
