The week that was

March 11, 2012
Minot Daily News

KANSAS IN MINOT Erik Ramstad Middle School's music program received some good news last week with the news that 1980s rock band Kansas will perform at a fundraiser May 1. Proceeds from the concert scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at the Minot Municipal Auditorium will go to the school's music department to help replaced instruments, sheet music and other items lost in last summer's devastating flood, which inundated the school with water nearly to the top of the building. Ramstad band program director Pat Schwan contacted Kansas representatives after he learned the band, known for such hits as "Dust in the Wind" and "Carry On Wayward Sun," was traveling the country to help music departments. When Kansas drummer Phil?Ehart was told about Ramstad's situation, the band agreed to perform in Minot at a reduced rate and will make a donation to the school. We hope the concert is a huge success.
