The ever-popular PanAmerican Steel Band features fun and interesting music from the Caribbean performed on steel pans from Trinidad and Tobago. Students will learn how this joyous musical art form grew out of the oppression of European slavery and hear the music as it was developed. 
This program can be adapted to a variety of performance situations including grade school presentations to enhance study of the music and culture of the Caribbean, junior high and high school music classes to demonstrate excellence in music performance, and community concert series performances.
PanAmerican Steel Band is available May 16-23, 2009. Limited additional dates are available by request and group availability. 
"You're a great band. Maybe the best band." Adams Elementary School Student, Davenport, Iowa
