This Minnesota state motto, L’etoile du Nord (Star of the North), seen on the state seal and the state flag, influenced the naming of the original state hockey team as the Minnesota North Stars, is a brand of Minnesota micro-brew beer, is the name of a competitive Drum and Bugle Corp troupe and also is a small café in Northern Minnesota.
For the Institute theme, our Minnesota Chapter wishes to present individual harp stars from the northern region as well as the teachers, students, performers, listeners, composers, harp makers, and inventors who make up the constellations and galaxies of the harp universe.
