George Winston concert postponed

The Friday, Aug. 12 benefit concert by Grammy Award-winner George Winston for the Central Lakes College Foundation has been postponed. Winston’s management firm, Dancing Cat, issued this statement regarding the postponement: “Due to circumstances beyond our control it has become necessary to postpone and reschedule several of George Winston’s upcoming events. We are very sorry for having to send this notice and hope we can work together to find another mutually agreeable date for a future performance.” Winston, who had performed at CLC each of the last two years for the Cultural Arts Series, was to present a solo concert in Tornstrom Auditorium as a student scholarships fundraiser. Pam Thomsen, director of resource development and the Foundation, said she will try to reschedule the event. The Foundation is sending a letter to all ticketholders with three options: 1. Request a refund; 2. Convert the purchase to a tax-deductible contribution; and 3. Hold tickets for a future date. Information may be obtained by calling (218) 855-8135.
