Caribbean Holiday Celebration
Dave Gerhart, director.
This is our annual Caribbean Holiday Celebration and will feature new music by Andy Narell and classic arrangements of your holiday favorites. We are also honored to have Liam Teague, steel pan virtuoso, as our guest artist. Hailed as the “Paganini of the Steelpan,” Mr. Teague will be a featured soloist with the steel drum orchestra. His commitment to demonstrating the great musical possibilities of the steelpan has taken him to Europe, Asia, and Australia, as well as North and Central America and the Caribbean and we are honored to be sharing the stage with him.
