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.)
