Bring in the Spring with sounds of the steelpan!

Join us in the Art Studio for a live performance and demonstration by Barrels to Beethoven. Barrels to Beethoven is an organization dedicated to the preservation, education, and innovation of the steelpan. The organization was founded in 2014 by Leigh Solomon Pugliano a musician, educator, and entrepreneur, who has played the steelpan since the age of 5.

The mission of Barrels to Beethoven is to provide accurate historical context, teach steelpan technique through engaging programs, increase access to steelpan education, and develop a new generation steelpan players, teachers, builders, and tuners.

Stick around til the end for an opportunity to try the instruments yourself!
