Steel Magic Northwest announces "Holiday in Steel," its first ever steel orchestra concert, including its after-school youth class, evening adult class, special guests, and featuring the debut of the "Pan Wizards" youth steel orchestra.
The program will include a few holiday favorites, two movements from the Nutcracker Suite, and other popular and Caribbean songs, artfully arranged by Artistic Director Gary Gibson for the modern steel orchestra, and rendered on the organization's new, finely tuned steel pan instruments.
Participants in the new Edmonds-based steel orchestra program have been rehearsing twice a week since September for the concert, and invite all to join for a fun evening of music and celebration. The concert is at 7:00pm, Thursday, December 15, 2016, at Edmonds Adventist Church, 8625 196th St SW, Edmonds.
There is no admission charge, but tax-deductible donations will be gratefully accepted, and will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a generous grant from the Lucky Seven Foundation.
