They will be performing “Promise Music” by Clif Walker, “Big Country” by Bela Fleck and “Waldstein Piano Sonata” by Ludwig van Beethoven.

Panoramic Steel is a steel drum ensemble using standard instruments from Trinidad. It has a large repertoire that includes numbers from genres such as traditional calypso, Soca, Brazilian and popular modern music. The ensemble will be performing “Flamingo Jump” by director and BYU School of Music faculty member Ron Brough, “Dee Mwa Wee” by Andy Narell and “Rainorma” by Aldwyn Roberts.
