Event Description

On Friday, April 15 at 7 p.m. at the Slocomb Auditorium, the steel band and a vocal quintet will join forces with the Skyline Vocal Jazz Quintet, based in San Francisco, for an intercollegiate collaboration to perform a premiere of Phil and Michelle Hawkins’ new work (title not yet determined). Phil Hawkins is an accomplished jazz drummer, and one of the leading innovators of music for the steel pan. Michelle Hawkins is an award-winning choral director and music educator. The concert will feature five movements: a Brazilian-flavored “Baião,” a Caribbean selection entitled “Feels Like Rain,” a Jamaican-flavored ska tune “Shiny Things,” an odd-metered selection called “Ant Xanthem,” and a Trinidadian-styled calypso “My Garden.”

April, May concerts to feature something for all music lovers
