BROOKINGS – What are you waiting for after an hour-long, indoor marching band concert? Christmas music, of course.

This year’s Pride of the Dakotas Indoor Concert will, for the first time, include Christmas music as its final selections. The biennial event is 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 2, at the Performing Arts Center, which is another first for the concert that dates back to the mid-1980s.

Jim Coull, director of the marching band, said the concert moved from its traditional home for several reasons.

“We have that wonderful facility right there, and it’s getting increasingly more difficult to schedule Frost (Arena). It’s something we’ve talked about doing. There’s no way to know how it will work until you actually try it,” Coull explained.
