OPENING OF BAND KIOSK.
TO THK EDITOR.
Sir,—ln your issue of Saturday last it was announced that His Worship the Mavor will olliciallv open the new band kiosk in the Gardens,' and that the pro : gramme will be given by the Kaikorai Hand and the Orphans' Club. 1 , ask why the Kaikorai 'Band should be the only band in attendance? Should not all our bands .take part in the opening.' On making inquiries I am told that they were not asked to take part. I am given to understand that all the bands have assisted in bringing about the muchneeded improvement—not only one band or even the Orphans' Club. I am euro each band would consider it a pleasure to be amongst the performers at the ollieial opening. The combined bands have frequently Riven concerts, and tiles* have always been appreciated 111 U verv substantial" way by the public, and people are always asking why arc there not more of these combined band concerts? As all the bands have already performed in the new kiosk, with the exception ol' the Regimental Hand, 1 think the. arrangement very unfair to that baud in particular. All our bands are no doubt being called on continually to assist at the mmvroiis charitable and patriotic Junctions in a more or less obscure way, and now * when there is a chance of" coining before a large and representative gathering or the public who will assemble at the official opening o. the kiosk they aro not to be given that pleasure. I none even at tin's late lions that the management will extend the invitation to all our bands to take part at the opening of their own band stan I. —I am. etc' Bandsman. December 7.
