A new home for the Two Harbors City Band
Thursday, April 18th, 2019
The Friends of the Band Shell Park nonprofit organization in Two Harbors, Minnesota, has been spearheading a redevelopment of the city’s 1937 band shell.
Pope Architects has been working with FBSP over the last year to create a design that supports a variety of performances including music and band concerts, dance recitals and theatrical presentations, as well as host large and small public and private events. The new structure will provide a permanent home for Two Harbors’ City Band.
“Music is deeply embedded into the roots and history of our community. Our city band is widely recognized throughout the state, and we are also home to the state’s largest ukulele group,” said Two Harbors Mayor Chris Swanson.
The organization is currently fundraising to replace the 81-year old Paul Gauche Band Shell.
