BENEFITING AUSTIN COMMUNITY STEELBAND
A steel orchestra relies on each musicians ability to hit their notes, stay on tempo and put in the effort to create a spectacular experience for audiences. Austin Community Steelband's non-profit school is carrying out that mission to teach young students, with focus on at-risk kids, the art of playing diverse music on Steelpans and how to work together as a creative team.
