Black History Month features four-piece steel band from New York

February 16, 2011

Penn State New Kensington continues its celebration of Black History Month at noon on Wednesday, Feb. 23, with a performance by Steel Impressions in Cafe 780. The four-piece steel band from New York with its Caribbean flair will sing, dance, and perform on electric and acoustic instruments. The music is a blend of European classical, rhythm and blues, jazz and popular tunes produced by the unique sound of steel drums, or pans -- a family of musical instruments made from 55-gallon oil drums struck with rubber mallets. The program is free to the public. For more information on Black History Month activities on campus, call 724-334-6062.
