New Steelpan Festival in Chicagoland Area!

NIU alumnus Matt Potts has teamed up with Denette Lynch to create the Great Lakes Steelpan Festival. This is an education focused festival that will be April 13th and 14th in 2013. 2013 will be the first year for this annual event. Publicity has just started about a week ago, and it has already seen great responses and interest from the bands in the area.

Unlike other festivals, this one will not have any competition part to it and will solely focus on education. Guest clinicians and guest artists will be brought in to work with bands and also to perform. There will also be various clinics throughout the weekend to talk about different aspects of pan including arranging, tuning, history, and more! The final segment of the festival will include a mass band segment along with a concert by the featured artist.
