Steel Pan Drumming

watch a video of the workshop
It was a beautiful night on Wednesday and the (surprisingly good for beginners) sounds of novice steel pan drumming filled the air on Green Street. North End resident, Bill Carbone led a workshop in the back garden at the Green Street Arts center. There were a bunch of North End kids and families there, and we all learned a lot about these instruments and about playing as an ensemble. Maybe we should start our own!

Next week's Arts in the Garden Workshop will be jewelry making. with NEAT's president, Cookie Quinones. Come make some dazzling adornments!

Thanks to the Middletown Commission on the Arts for funding this program!
