Dear Eric and Jack:

I write on behalf of the Board of Directors of the Greater
Atlanta Arts Council to urge the development of plans for the design
and construction of an outdoor performing facility in Piedmont Park.
The Council believes that such a facility is sorely needed to meet a
multiplicity of community needs, some of which are as follows:

(1) Primary and secondary school musical (band, orchestral and
choral) concerts
(2) Children's theatre and dance presentations
(3) Atlanta Arts Festival performing arts events
() Political rallies
(5) Other community activities of interest which have access

to no other

stage facility

(6) College productions by Atlanta area colleges.

Events which could be presented here would be very attractive to vast
numbers of Atlanta citizens because of the informal outdoor setting.

This has been demonstrated by the events presented for the last dozen
years by Arts Festival productions.

The Council hopes that you may look favorably on this request
and we would be most happy to assist in the promotion and development
of this project if you feel that it would be useful.


Cordially yours,


Joseph S. Perrin
