IRON MOUNTAIN — The Dickinson County Community Chorus will present “Music Under the Stars” at 7 p.m. Sunday at the Lake Antoine Band Shell in Iron Mountain.

There will be many opportunities for the audience to sing along.

Assistant directors and section leaders are Dawn Kranz, Jeremiah Garriguies-Cortelyou, Joe McKindles and Gail Vornkahl.
