WESTON — Emmanuel Church continues its Summer Concert Series with a second installment at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 19. The event features New Haven’s St. Luke’s Steel Band, followed by an ice cream social.
The community is invited to bring chairs and picnic blankets for the concert, which will take place on the church grounds, weather permitting. The program will be held rain or shine, either outside or in the parish hall.
Started with steel pans purchased in Brooklyn in 1999, St. Luke’s Steel Band has become a highly regarded, exciting ensemble with members hailing from Antiqua, Barbados, Bermuda, Grenada, Jamaica, Montserrat, Nevis and Trinidad and Tobago.
Led by the directorial team of Debby Teason, Donna Johnson, and Kenneth Joseph, St. Luke’s Steel Band has a repertoire that is both impressive and entertaining; their musical styles include soca, calypso, reggae, classical, sacred, jazz, popular and island folk music.
The program, titled Sounds from St. Luke’s Steel Band, is free (though donations are welcomed), open to the public, and held at Emmanuel Episcopal Church, 285 Lyons Plain Road, Weston. For more information, visit www.emmanuelweston.org or call 203-227-8565.
