$7 at the door (feel free to bring your lunch!)

Steel Appeal will be presenting an exciting musical experience that will feature music from around the world. Performing as a steel drum combo, the group will present topics that include history and evolution of the steel drum, manufacturing, tuning, performance techniques, and musical concepts such as rhythm, tempo, melody, harmony, timbre, forms, and dynamics. Popular musical styles associated with steel band performance will be addressed and performed – and volunteers will be invited to play along!

Steel Appeal is a steel drum academy based in Campbellsville, Kentucky with branches in Elizabethtown and Danville. The academy was founded in 2015 by Dr. Chad Floyd, associate professor of music at Campbellsville University, and is currently comprised of over 75 students of all ages. The academy offers instruction year-round and includes both private lessons and group lessons for all ages, including adults. Students are grouped together based upon experience levels and abilities. Performance opportunities are made available for each member throughout the communities.
