Steel Pan Orchestra: The Steel Pan Orchestra was established in November 2015, as a multi-generational ministry. Rehearsals began in March 2016 with our first performance in May 2016. Since then the orchestra has played regularly at Sunday services. It has also performed at several special functions including the Annual Mardi Gras and Jazz Concert, and was featured at the 2017 Diocesan Convention.
The Orchestra’s Motto is "We walk by faith, not by sight." The age range is from 10 to 70-plus. None of our members had prior experience playing steel pans, and while a few have musical knowledge it is not a requirement for becoming a member, and recruitment is ongoing. Expenses are met through dues, donations and fundraising activities. With sufficient notice the orchestra is able to accept requests for special performances in other venues.
