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.
