Music has been part of the scene of Lake Harriet for over a century. The new band shell is the fifth music facility put in place since 1888 and summer music concerts continue to this day. Each year, from early June to the end of August, canoeists, bikers, hikers and other residents from throughout the region come to Lake Harriet to hear nightly concerts with a wide range of programming. Kirkegaard provided acoustics, audio system design, and community noise control consulting services for the project.
