NIU Steelband Percussion Outreach

MPAC is excited to announce a presentation for percussion students, music students and teachers. The Northern Illinois University Steelband will hold an informal lecture/demonstration on Friday, April 13, 4 – 5 p.m. in Mendelssohn Hall.

The presentation will be a learning opportunity for students and an exciting introduction to the sounds of the NIU Steelband. Topics included will be the history of steelpan, building and tuning, repertoire, steelband related competitions and events and perhaps an opportunity for students to learn a short song on pan.

There is no charge to attend but we would like to have reservations by April 9. Reservations up to our capacity of 400 will be accepted on a first come, first-served basis.

Please respond to Barbara Simon, MPAC Outreach Chair at mpac_outreach@yahoo.com. Your reservation will be confirmed by return email.
