We thought readers would be interested in this upcoming workshop. From an email:
The Brookland-based Pantones Steel Drum Ensemble, will be holding a workshop for anyone interested in learning the steel drum. The workshop will be on Saturday, February 20, from 2:30 to 4:30 pm, at the Edgewood Arts Building in Brookland, near Catholic University. It is located at 3415 8th Street NE. Plenty of parking nearby, and it is also just a few blocks away from the Brookland/Catholic University Metro stop (Red Line) if you plan on taking Metro. The workshop is hands-on; participants will get some quick instruction on technique, a little background about the instrument, and then you will learn a couple of songs that you will be playing by the end of the afternoon! Cost is $20. Space is limited. Pay at the door, or ensure a spot by registering in advance by emailing: pantonesband(at)gmail(dot)com.
