Final Concert In Central Park For 2014

The Bandshell Brass of Faribault last night performed the final concert in Central Park for this season.  We visited with a number of people in attendance and many had attended a majority if not all the concerts this summer.  Some indicated they would like to see the season extended.  Joel Raaen is in charge of booking the music for the park and says they work with a limited budget and that’s why the limited number of concerts.  Raaen notes the community is truly blessed to have such a “gem” in Central Park, saying groups always enjoy playing there because the acoustics are terrific for musicians as well as the audience.  The present facility was constructed in 1921 at a cost of $6,000 to replace the original band stand that stood in the park for about 30 years.  The original simply deteriorated to the point where it needed to be replaced.  Some in attendance wondered about painting the emblem seen on the front and at the top of the structure a different color so it would stand out.
