Steely Pan Steel Band reunion concert held April 26

BOONE—Clean and press your Hawaiian shirt and great ready for an incredible night of steel pan music when the Steely Pan Steel Band and alumni perform in a free concert Saturday, April 26. The program begins at 8 p.m. in the Schaefer Center for the Performing Arts at Appalachian State University. Doors open at 7 p.m.

This will be the largest gathering ever of steel drum players at the university and the last concert the band will perform with director and founder Dr. Scott Meister, who is retiring after 40 years of teaching in the Hayes School of Music.

The stage will be filled with 80 to 90 steel drums as more than 50 alumni are expected to join the 40-member band for the performance. Among the returning alumni are Jeff Jones and Josh Harris who are now music professors at Sweet Briar College, John Leupold who is a member of the Washington College faculty, Chris Wabich, a professional percussionist and pan player from Los Angeles, and Jonathan Scales, a steel pan player and composer from Asheville.
