STEEL DRUMS

7th-12th Steel Drums
Our Most popular instrumental program, students learn the history of the newest acoustic instrument, the Trinidad Steel Pan! UCS steel drum ensembles are comprised of soprano, alto, tenor, and bass voiced instruments fashioned from 55 gallon oil drums, hand fired and hammered into various melodic pitches, upon which students perform traditional folk songs and popular melodies in calypso style. With the recent introduction of the "Engine Room" incorporating cocktail drums, and Latin percussion, the UCS Steel Band is the most unique ensemble in the region. Don't miss the opportunity to hear our students "play de pan mon!"
