Carnival Steel Band performance

RASPO's carnival steel band project fulfilled it's objectives to attract new players to the regular workshops and rehearsals at South Street Arts Centre.

The project culminated in a local performance to give the newcomers the opportunity to experience the thrill of playing steel pan to a live audience.

Ten new participants joined the twice weekly workshops learning eight songs from RASPO's repertoire in the eight scheduled sessions.

The newcomers were encouraged to share what they learned at a live public performance in the Berkshire town of Reading.
