2018-2019 CHS Steel Band Auditions


Interested in learning to play pan (a.k.a. steel drums)?!? Come to the “Panyard,” the steel band rehearsal room located near the cafeteria on the basement level of the main building for group lessons taught by student leaders of CHS Steel on Monday and Tuesday, August 20 & 21, from 2:30 – 4:30. Auditions for CHS Steel will be held on Wednesday, August 22, from 2:30 – 4:30, in the Panyard. The audition process continues from 2:30 – 4:30 on Thursday, August 23. New band members will join returning members of CHS Steel for daily rehearsals from 2:30 – 4:30 on Monday the 27th through Thursday the 30th. The regular schedule of Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday rehearsals from 2:30 – 4:30 will begin on Tuesday, September 4. Students auditioning should be able to read music but no prior experience playing pan is necessary; students trying out on drumset should be able to play a calypso pattern. For further information, contact the directors, Mr. Wharton, and Mr. Hamilton,
