Northshore Philharmonic Orchestra

Join us for the Northshore Philharmonic Orchestra on July 28th starting at 6p.m.! Made up of people of all ages and intents united by their love of symphonic music. Membershop includes adult amature and professional musicians, members of college and high school music programs, as well as some performers who are members of the Mesabi Symphony and the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestras “giving back” to the community. 

The Northshore Philharmonic Orchestra (NSPO) positions itself as a community orchestra for the northern Wisconsin and Minnesota Arrowhead areas, including the Iron Range. It is “community” in the sense that all members are volunteers; few make a living as a performing musician. It is “professional” according to expression of its devotion to excellence.

Why NSPO? – Promote Local Talent!

It is our hope that you will consider exercising a corporate or personal initiative to support talented and professional hard-working individuals who pursue artistic achievement as an avocation in the Northland. Through your effort to validate active performance opportunities for capable, creative, and assertive individuals, the productive capacity of the entire local economy is enhanced to a higher level of quality.

FREE TO ATTEND and in conjunction with Bands, Brews, & BBQ (NSPO is the featured performance in the Amphitheater) offering delicious food and beverages prior to and during the show!

Wild Horses & Superior Siren Concert logo

Wild Horses & Superior Siren Concert

The Wild Horses & Superior Siren Concert will be taking place at The Minnesota Discovery Center Friday July 8th 2022 in their gorgeous MDC Amphitheatre! The Wild Horses & Superior Siren Concert will be happening, rain or shine. 

Enjoy two incredible performances by these up and coming artists as well as delicious food and beverages catered by The Rustic Pig.

The opening performance will be Superior Siren and will play from 7p.m.-8p.m.

Superior Siren is an eerie folk project from Duluth, Minnesota. The music is inspired by Lake Superior and Siren mythology, and combines alluring vocals with haunting meodies. Superior Siren is led by singer-songwriter and guitarist Laura Sellner. Sellner debuted the project in 2014 with the ethereal solo EP “Lotus in the Muck”. In 2016 she joined forces with cellist Rachel Gobin, bassist Nyssa Krause, and drummer Emma Deaner to craft a mesmerizing blend of strings and percussion. The all-female band released a full-length self-titled LP in 2018, followed by a tour of the Midwest. In 2021 Superior Siren released another solo EP of original material titled “Kill Your Darlings”.


The Main Performance is Wild Horses and will play from 8:30p.m. – 10:00p.m.

Hailing from the deep woods of northern Minnesota, Wild Horses is quickly becoming one of the regions hottest rising folk-rock bands. Having already shared the stage with renowned artists such as Langhorne Slim, Charlie Parr, and Trampled by Turtles. They have left a lasting impression on their show-goers by packing venues across the state. They’ve often been compared to bands like Mumford and Sons, The Lumineers, and Gregory Alan Isakov.

Wild Horses seeks to convey the unbridled heart of the Wild West in their music. Through time spent in its wide open spaces and often unforgiving nature, the band offers intimate knowledge of the need to move forward no matter what terrain lies ahead. Their debut record , Runaway, will be released in the summer of 2022.

Wild Horses’ core consists of Jed LaPlant (vocals, guitar), Ariana LaPlant (vocals, keys, fiddle), McKeon Hugh Roberts (bass), and JJ Snell (drums).
