Ann Nelson Hall

A preview of The Ann Nicole Nelson Hall was held for supporters on Monday, January 6, 2003. The first symphony performance occurred on Saturday, February 2, 2003. Formerly George McFarland Auditorium, the concert hall in Old Main at Minot State University unveiled a new look along with the new name. Velvet and wood seats, an orchestra pit, state-of-the-art lighting system and gold decorative molding are just a few of the renovations. All fine-tuning will be done by June 2003. During a speech at the preview by Gary Nelson, he gave the university a replica of the iron cross given to him and Jenette at Ground Zero.

Gary also gave a speech at the formal opening of the Ann Nicole Nelson Hall at the Minot Symphony's Homecoming Concert on Feb 1, 2003.
