Letter: Good progress for Bluestem

There seems to be a misconception over the Fargo School Board’s planned use of Bluestem Center for The Arts. The city of Moorhead has taken issue, as well as The Forum, which published an editorial on Dec 16.

We produced concerts in the facility in 2009, 2010 and 2011, which consisted of the Moody Blues, Sheryl Crow, A Prairie Home Companion and a handful of others. Following the 2011 summer season, we opted out of working with the Bluestem board for a number of reasons.

The Fargo School Board has taken plenty of abuse, but their vision for the facility will become clear in the near future. Fargo Superintendent Jeff Schatz, Trollwood Performing Arts School Executive Director Kathy Anderson and their team have both communities’ best interests at heart. Working with this team versus the last has been nothing short of inspiring.

We are thrilled to announce the first concert for the 2013 season today. There will most certainly be more announcements forthcoming.
