Two Harbors Band Shell Park Upgrade: Evaluation and Design of Structure.

Amenumey, Felix.

The Two Harbors city band is one of the oldest band in the state of Minnesota (Gregor & Saur, 2012). It has played a vital role of entertaining the Two Harbors community as well as tourists for nearly 115 years. The construction of the Paul Gauche Memorial Band Shell in 1937, coupled with the dedication of band members has over the years contributed rich music production (Friends of the Band Shell Park, 2012). However, the Band Shell is now over 70 years, and this is telling on its current physical structure. The current condition of the band shell has led to the formation of “Friends of the Band Shell Park,” a committee with the aim to explore long-term options to enhance the Thomas Owens Park and the Band Shell. The purpose of the Two Harbors Band Shell Project is to improve the city band shell by upgrading or replacing it. The first phase of the project is to hire an architectural/engineering company to assess the existing Band Shell and come up with a plan for construction. The next phase will be fundraising, leading to the final phase of reconstruction of the band Shell.
