From Bach to calypso, from rap to reggae, enjoy the magic of steel pans, the musical phenomenon from Trinidad and Tobago! All the NMS steel bands perform on the NMS steel band recital in May as well as during Ensemble Week in January.
Sherry & Alivia Craft Teen Steel Band
This ensemble brings together teens from all over the Greater New Haven area to play a mix of current popular and Caribbean music. It was created and is supported in memory of Sherry Craft, a beloved member of the NMS steel band community for many years. Free for all students, participation is by invitation of the instructor.
Steel Band for Adults
Three adult steel bands accommodate students of all experience levels and ages. Students create a wonderful, fun and committed community while learning to play music they love together. Before enrolling in these popular classes, individual lessons with the instructor are highly recommended. Please contact Debby Teason for placement information.
