In the Spring of 2019, the media contact from the English-American rock band, Foreigner contacted Megan Argall, Choir Director at Mahnomen Public Schools noting that the band was going to be playing at Shooting Star Casino the first Friday in September.
In the past several years the band has selected a local choir group to sing with them on stage during their performance. Foreigner is a huge supporter of music in our schools and this is one way they promote that effort.
Our students were invited to watch the concert and join the band for one song on stage; the groups sang “I Wanna Know What Love Is” together in front of an energetic SOLD OUT audience on Friday, September 6th, 2019.
In return, the band donated $500.00 to our music department. Choir students also received a portion of CD sales from that night which when into individual student accounts for the choir's Spring Music Trip.
Choir director Megan Argall stated, "It was a great experience for our students and a chance for them to experience being on stage with popular group who supports what we do".
Congratulations to the Mahnomen Choir and Thank You to the band Foreigner! Check out the video of our students, singing here!
