NO WALKING AWAY UNHAPPY.

The spring steel pan concert took place on Sunday, April 13.

We reported on the thirtieth anniversary concert, with extended commentary on performances other than traditional calypsos, and our recovery spring of 2008 included an arrangement of Shostakovich among the performances.

Students do the arrangements (as part of their coursework?) and the most recent concert featured Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2.  The arranger mentioned that people in the audience might recognize the music from Saturday cartoons.  That's encouraging, "Daffy, they drive me daffy" is still part of the common culture.  "Breakfast, McDonald's breakfast" blessedly not so.  The video (embedding disabled at their request) is available for your viewing pleasure.
