Join us on Thursday for a steel pan and stilt walking performance by Tropical Fete.

The twenty-two member Tropical Fete Steel Pan youth ensemble will play from a set list that includes Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ Uptown Funk, Beethoven’s Für Elise, Ed Sheeran’s Shape of You, Louie Armstrong’s What A Wonderful World and more.

Following the performance, we’ll try our hand at playing the steel pan during an interactive, hands-on workshop.
