The event is a workshop to learn how to play the steel drums with the PanTones band in DC. The workshop is not far from Bloomingdale. I have attached the flyer, and here is the blurb:

Brookland, DC

Love the sound of the steel pan? Here’s your chance to learn how to play this iconic instrument of Trinidad. The PanTones, an award-winning adult community steel band, is offering this workshop for beginners. We’ll provide the instruments, teach you the technique for playing them, tell you a little bit about the historical and cultural background of the steel drum, and have everyone playing a couple of songs by the end of the afternoon. No prior musical experience required. And, if you’re captivated by playing the pan, we can offer you the opportunity to become part of our ensemble - three members of the group are graduates of the workshop!

Space is limited! Pay at the door (cash or check only), or ensure a spot by registering in advance, by emailing us at
