Steel Pan Residency at RTS

Last Friday, students at Rutland Town School performed a showcase, highlighting their new skills in playing steel pans. Lead by Jennifer Cohen of Calypso Connections, various grade levels played several different songs and tunes. Parents and community members were invited to join the assembly as well, making this the first full school assembly that’s been held in a few years. Mr. Whitman joined in, playing instruments that supported the main sound from the steel pans. Mr. Audet also played a part by singing with some of the songs. The gymnasium was filled with the sounds of the tropical islands, transporting the audience to a different part of the world! Thank you Jennifer for doing this residency with the students. Check out the highlights below.
