NIU Steelband fall 2009 concert: November 22nd

NIU Steelband, Steelpan Studio and All University Steelband present its 2009 fall concert under the direction of Cliff Alexis and Liam Teague on Sunday November 22nd at 3pm. The concert takes place at NIU School of Music’s Boutell Memorial Concert Hall and will showcase a wide variety of musical styles including classical, jazz, calypso and mazooka.
The event will also feature gifted steelpan player and composer, Gary Gibson. The Seattle-based musician has released four recordings which have drawn the praise of steelpan aficionados as well as the jazz community for his unique approach of applying sophisticated jazz harmony and inflection to the infectious traditional forms and rhythms of the Caribbean. Gibson’s most recent award from Trinidad came as a composer; he was the 1st Prize-winner in two out of three categories of the 2008 "Symphony and Steel" orchestral composition contest.
The concert will be streamed on the web and can be found at: www.niu.edu/music/media/webcasts.shtml.

Mr. Liam Teague and Mr. Clifford Alexis are doing a wonderful job. They are spreading our pan culture to the world .I hope that the people of sweet T&T would recognise their contriburtions.
