Escape to the Islands with the authentic steel drum sounds of the ASU Steely Pan Steel Band.

Tickets will include the concert and a tropical-themed dinner.

ASU students will travel from Boone to provide Steel Pan workshops at both East and West Middle schools on Thursday and Friday, as well.

The Steely Pan Steel Band consists of 22 performers and 41 steel drums, including drumset and percussion. The ensemble has gained quite a reputation performing at universities, art festivals, and all types of schools throughout the South. They were featured at both the North and South Carolina Music Teachers Conventions and have given clinics and performances at Percussive Arts Society’s Day of Percussion.

The Steely Pan Steel Band was sponsored by WSOC Channel 9 in Charlotte as part of the city’s Spring Fest. The ensemble performs a variety of music from traditional soca/calypsos, to classical, to rock and roll, and even performs traditional Appalachian Mountain music. Any style of music can be played on steel drums and all ages are sure to be entertained!

Call the Hiddenite Center for reservations.
