WORTHINGTON — A free concert featuring 75 area fourth- through sixth-graders takes place at 1:45 p.m. Friday in the Prairie Elementary gymnasium.

The concert, which is free and open to the public, will cap a day of music learning that the students are undertaking at the Music Explorers Festival.

Sponsored in part by the Worthington Area Foundation, and with the support of ISD 518 Community Education, the festival will provide selected students with exposure to choral music and folk dance, plus instruction in percussion and ukulele playing.

They will demonstrate their newly honed skills at the afternoon’s culminating concert.
