The concert is designed to demonstrate versatility of the steelpan that was created in the Caribbean shortly after World War II. The steel pan is often mistaken for a percussive instrument because of it's design when in fact it is a melodic instrument. Steel Impressions will perform a variety of tunes such as classic Caribbean folk tunes, reggae, calypso, jazz and contemporary popular music. An appreciation for this unique instrument and all types of music is the goal of this concert.
