The purpose of the Electric City Steel Drum Project is to offer a quality program of music instruction and performance opportunity for all members of the community. Participation in the Project is open to individuals of all ages, especially those who may not have any other avenues in which to pursue music training. Although some musical knowledge and talent is helpful, neither is a requirement for participation. Our purpose is to cultivate in others a love of music and the desire to work with others, to treat others kindly, and to act responsibly. The Project also offers participants numerous opportunities to serve their communities through concerts at a wide variety of venues. A steel band is unique in that all genres of music may be performed successfully on these instruments. Ideally, participants will be exposed to and learn many styles of music from a variety of cultures. Some examples are traditional island music, jazz, classical, pop, rock, Latin American, Salsa, Reggae, Gospel, and seasonal. The Project is located on the second floor of The Marketplace at Steamtown next to Bee’s Backyard.
