Jade Presents and Fargo Public Schools Team Up

Jade Presents has an­nounced plans to continue support of local musical performances with the help of the Fargo public school system.

The news comes by way of a contract between the two organizations setting up a “three-year booking and production contract” to sup­port the Imagine Amphithe­atre at the Bluestem Center for the Arts.

The groups will hold a press conference at 10:30 A.M. on March 18 to an­nounce the upcoming series of events for this summer. The conference will be held at the Scheels Living Room in the Marcil Commons at the previously mentioned Bluestem Center. The build­ing is located at 801 50th Ave. S in Moorhead, Minn.

“Imagine Amphitheatre at Bluestem is a special ven­ue,” Jade Companies, LLC President Jade Nielson said in the press release. “It gives fans in our region the op­portunity to experience live music in a beautiful outdoor setting allowing us to take full advantage of our short summer months. It’s some­thing that we look forward to all year.”

The Fargo public school system also weighed in on the contract.

“The partnership be­tween the Fargo Public Schools and Jade Presents will provide the larger metro community with numerous musical entertainment op­tions at the Bluestem Center of the Arts venue,” superin­tendent Dr. Jeffrey Schatz said. “We look forward to continuing and building upon the previous perfor­mance series. The 2014 sea­son at Bluestem is shaping up to be the best yet!”

The Bluestem Center for the Arts itself is a 2,500-seat indoor venue built along the side of the Red River in Moorhead.

Previously, the amphi­theater has played host to performing artists like O.A.R., Sheryl Crow, Prai­rie Home Companion, The Moody Blues and Trampled by Turtles. If all goes well with this ongoing partner­ship, there should be even more musical events com­ing to the venue – and the Fargo-Moorhead region – in the coming years.
