Enjoy a concert by “Steel Impressions” on Thursday, September 18, 2014 at 1:30 PM in the Large Meeting Room. Professional Long Island musicians will create a tropical music ambiance with pulsating calypso, reggae, and contemporary songs on unique instruments called steelpans. Imagine you’re in the Caribbean with toe-tapping, hand-clapping, head-bobbing, and hip-swaying music! Enjoy tunes like “Yellow Bird,” “Hot, Hot, Hot,” and “Brazil.”
This concert is designed to demonstrate versatility of the steelpan that was created in the Caribbean shortly after World War II. The steelpan is often mistaken for a percussive instrument, because of it's design, when in fact it is a melodic instrument. Questions and answers will follow the concert for anyone interested in learning more about steelpan instruments.
