Hi Ken,

I'd love to get more information on how to make one that is portable if you know. My choir of 50 singers and 15 chamber orchestra tour at least dozen times a year. Thank you!

Forrest Coleman

I'd be interested in the details on constructing these pretty cool
devices. Thanks!

Ken Rushton

I just built a double-size one and have simplified the design, taking pictures and movies as I went. I hope to squeeze the time to document and post the details this week-end.
I know I've missed on my promises to do so in the past, but hopefully the time-stealing demons will hold off for a few days.

Our 75-member chorus would like to use the local performing arts center, but the on-stage acoustics are much as described here. This solution is one worth exploring. I'd love more detailed plans. Thanks.

Fred Saurmann

I'm curious as to how this project was completed, I'm technical director of a church with a choir number anywhere from about 30-50 some members. We seem to have the same dilemmas that you've experienced. I would love to get some more information on how you completed this project. Thanks for your insight!

Rick Ward

We are a symphonic chorus with 50 - 90 voices and accompaniement ranging from piano, bass and drums to a 40 piece orchestra. We also perform in several venues, including high ceilinged cathedrals. I have been charged by the board of directors with getting information about choral shells.
Your system looks fascinating. Any detailed information you can send me would be greatly appreciated.

Ingrid Ojala

I'd love more details for our choir of around 40!

How inventive!

I'd love to have the details on this shell. It looks like it would be perfect for our church's multi-purpose room when we have our Christmas and Easter programs.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, Ken

Could you please send me the details? I am a Sweet Adeline from Northern California and am in charge of our regional competition in April. We had been using a choral shell belonging to the Calif. Music Educators (CMEA) for our 13+ choruses of about 500 singer - but the shell is no longer available and I can't find another shell in all of California ... and the cost of purchasing a shell is quite prohibitive.

I would be grateful to see your solution.

What a great idea! I'd love to have more details. Could you send them to me? THANKS!

Zeke Johnstone

Hi Ken,

That is some amazing work you guys did on your shell!

I am helping with an event where there will be 500 teenagers singing. The venue is in a fair ground pavilion and the sound is terrible. Can you send me the details for building this choral shell. Thank you so much.

Mike Maughan

Hello Ken, thanks for posting this and generously offering to share the details! We have a choir of 60 as well and are always looking for ways to enhance our and the audience's experience. By all means, please let us have more details we can decide whether to mount a project to build one. We are the High Spirits Choral Society in Vancouver BC, musical director Ieva Wool. My name is Mike Maughan, Board President of HSCS. Thanks again!
