From a four-piece ensemble, the band has grown to its present size of 17 musicians.

​Formed as a means for students to study and perform music from a culture other than their own, the band shares the music of Trinidad and Tobago with audiences throughout the Maryland region.

100% of the revenue from the concert will go to Episcopal Relief and Development’s Hurricane Relief Fund. Working through their vast disaster response network and the more than 100 Anglican/Episcopal Churches in the Bahamas they will ensure that relief and rebuilding efforts are delivered quickly and efficiently.
