This week, Vriendschap Village residents and staff traveled to Central College to enjoy the Flying Pans Alumni Steel Band 12th Annual Concert.
The Flying Pans Steel Band is the only college ensemble in the country that plays steel pan drums. The instruments originated in Trinidad and Tobago, but the group doesn’t limit itself to Caribbean music. Some of the Flying Pans’ favorite concerts included everything from pop hits to disco, complete with costumes., lights and visual aids. Many of the Flying Pans aren’t music majors, and none come in knowing how to play steel pan. The group takes anyone willing to learn. Director Stan Dahl, senior lecturer of music, teaches them how to play. This concert includes both alumni and student performers.
