Suzette Vidale is a talented and innovative steelpannist in the Toronto steelpan community. She welcomes you to come join her workshop
Steelpan With Suzette.

 
 
Culture Days is a collaborative coast-to-coast volunteer movement to raise the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities. With the support of a National Steering Committee and volunteer Provincial and Territorial Task Forces, thousands of activity organizers self-mobilize at the grassroots level to present and coordinate free public activities that take place throughout the country over the last weekend of September each year.

The Steelpan, the only pitched percussive instrument invented in the 20th century, was created in the twin republic islands of Trinidad and Tobago. It has journeyed throughout the decades to evolve into an accepted and celebrated instrument.

Have fun while learning the proper technique of holding the sticks, stance and playing a steelpan.
