PIERRE (AP) — Classical music lovers can mark South Dakota's 125th anniversary of statehood and see what the state says will be the first full orchestra performance in the Capitol with more than 50 members.

The South Dakota Symphony Orchestra will perform the free concert on Saturday, Nov. 1, in Pierre on the eve of the date President Benjamin Harrison signed the proclamation admitting South Dakota to the Union.

The event will also include the rededication and lighting ceremony for the newly restored stained glass in the Capitol.

Ticketing information and the availability date for reserving seats will be made in the future. Standing room only will be available on the marble grand staircase and in the balconies above the rotunda floor.
