Farmington Hill's newly constructed band shell was dedicated and the FCB Concert Band had the honor of performing the first concert on its stage last night.

The shell's manufacturer described it as a "kit" in their sales literature to the city. From remarks made during the dedication ceremony, I gather "kit" translated as "a pile of lumber, miscellaneous hardware, and instructions." Nevertheless, the shell is beautiful and does a superior job of directing sounds on the stage to the audience. In terms of sound quality, the shell is almost as good as Harrison's auditorium. (And the band itself sounded wonderful.)

Not bad! You can get entire houses in that kit form, you know, at one time, back in the 20s, they were very popular, you could even order them from Sears! You got all the materials, cut to fit, and labled, and the blueprints and instructions. They said you could get your house together in about two days I think. Maybe less. Like I said, the're still around, just not as popular.

That's very nice and certainly more attractive than those metal clamshell monstrosities.
