Kansas makes its way to Bozeman Saturday as part of its Kansas Collegiate Symphony Tour where they will be performing with the Montana State University Symphony.

The tour will kick off in Wendover, Nev., on Friday evening. Additional tour stops include Missoula, Portland, Ore., and Los Angeles. The tour will complete on June 1 where Kansas will perform with the Kansas City Symphony.

The popular ‘70s band began the Kansas Collegiate Symphony Tour in 2010 in an effort to promote music education. The goal of the tour is to raise awareness and funds for university music programs.

This event has been highly anticipated by the Montana State University music department. Music Director Greg Young says that he sees this as a wonderful opportunity for the members of the MSU symphony to perform with high caliber musicians.

Songs anticipated in this upcoming concert include their famous “Dust in the Wind” and “Carry on Wayward Son.”

The concert will take place at the Brick Breeden Fieldhouse Saturday, March 24, at 7 p.m. Tickets are still available at $50 for the general public or $25 for students. Proceeds will go towards the MSU School of Music.
