Celebrating 20 years of steel drum music @ Pan Arts Panyard
Jan 31 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Pan Arts is celebrating 20 years of bringing the sweet sounds of steel drum music to the North Coast, with a free open house and community workshop.

There will be light food fare, performances by beginning/intermediate Pan Arts students and a short selection of music by Pan Dulce Steel Orchestra, the resident community band. A free introductory workshop, taught in the traditional rote style of Trinidad and Tobago, will be offered at 7 p.m. for those interested in learning to play. This teaching style allows those with little or no musical experience to join in the joy of music making.

Pan Arts began 20 years ago when local musicians Kate Lang-Salazar, John Salazar and Michael Skweir, inspired by performing in the 120-piece steel bands of Trinidad and Tobago, dreamed of bringing the spirit and camaraderie of Trinidad’s “Panyard” to the North Coast. Since then, they have taught steel drum, or “Pan,” classes to students of all ages and ability levels, worked with numerous local schools and directed Pan Dulce Steel Orchestra, an 18-piece steel band that performs for a wide range of local community festivals and events.
