No matter the reason, Fargo is turning into Funkytown tonight as the Fargo-Moorhead Symphony Orchestra teams up with the 12-piece band Post Traumatic Funk Syndrome for the fifth annual "Symphony Rocks" at Bluestem. The concert and fundraising event combines classic rousing orchestral showpieces like Stravinsky's Firebird with funk classics by the likes of Tower of Power and Earth, Wind & Fire.
