Duncan is no stranger to weekends full of experiences for all. Recognized in the top ten of the "Top Entertaining Cities in OK" and "Best Small City in OK" by Movoto.com, it is no surprise to see yet one more full weekend schedule of activities.

The Chisholm Trail Arts Council's Live Concert Series presents "M-Pact" at the Simmons Center on Thursday evening, September 24th. Hailed as "one of the best pop-jazz vocal groups in the world" by the San Francisco Chronicle, M-pact is respected worldwide as a cutting edge trailblazer in the realm of vocal music. Emerging from an age of auto-tune and overproduction, this Los Angeles-based ensemble has cultivated a new generation of ears hungry for the fresh, raw power of nature's "first instrument" - the human voice. Show begins at 7:30 PM, with tickets priced at $20 per adult and $10 per student. For more information, visit Chisholm Trail Arts Council’s website
