July 03--August concert will serve as kickoff for Morning Son's 30th anniversary
By Chris Reinoos
Morning Son Christian School is preparing to host Christian band Go Fish in concert on Aug. 10.
But that likely will not be the last big event of the year for the school, according to principal Tessa Martinson.
Morning Son will be celebrating its 30th anniversary beginning this coming school year, and the Go Fish concert will serve as a sort of unofficial kickoff for the year-long celebration.
"We wanted to do something different than just a banquet or what has been done in the past," Martinson said of putting the concert together.
The show will begin at 7 p.m. on Aug. 10 at Kennedy Secondary School, with doors opening at 6 p.m. Morning Son did not have a venue of its own in which to host the popular band, so they worked with the Fergus Falls School District to bring the show to the school's auditorium.
Tickets went on sale on June 1 and cost $10 each. Morning Son students received a ticket voucher for the show as an end-of-the-year gift, and Martinson said keeping prices as low as possible was a priority.
"We wanted to keep that reasonable for families to come and enjoy it together," she said.
Students were informed of the concert earlier in the spring, and excitement certainly has been building since the announcement. Martinson has heard from several parents whose children have been looking up Go Fish songs online, and many children were familiar with the band to begin with, making the show a highly anticipated one.
Go Fish was formed in 1993 by a group of Minnesota residents. They have released nearly 20 albums in their career, focusing on children's music for the past decade.
