Join us for a lively Saturday Family Concert, featuring the captivating rhythms and melodies of the Seattle Steel Pan Project (SSPP). With over 30 years of dedication to steelpan education and performance in the Pacific Northwest, SSPP, under the administrative guidance of Oriana Estrada and the artistic direction of Michael Shantz, has become a beacon for promoting steel pan culture. This event is a unique opportunity to experience the magic of the steel pan, also known as the steel drum, the most modern acoustic musical instrument to grace the world stage.

Originating from the Caribbean nation of Trinidad & Tobago in the 1940s, the steel pan has evolved into a versatile instrument found in ensembles worldwide. The professional performance ensemble of SSPP, comprised of seasoned musicians, will showcase the instrument’s rich history and cultural significance. Don’t miss this chance to immerse yourself in the infectious beats of the steel pan and enjoy a delightful evening of family-friendly entertainment.

The Seattle Steel Pan Project goes beyond performances, actively contributing to the community through K-12 school-based steel pan curriculum, after-school and summer camps, public community classes, workshops, and private lessons. Whether you’re a music enthusiast or a family looking for a weekend outing, this concert promises an engaging experience for all ages. Join us in celebrating the global resonance of the steel pan and the dedication of SSPP in bringing this unique musical tradition to the heart of the Pacific Northwest. Get ready for an unforgettable Saturday filled with rhythm, melody, and the vibrant spirit of the steel pan at Town Hall Seattle.

As with all of our Saturday Family Concerts, this event is free for ages 22 and under.
