Concerts are what we do best. Typically, in an outdoor venue the orchestra performs three to
six 45-60 minute sets with 30 minute to 2 hour breaks in-between. But dont let that limit your
imagination; we are always willing to come up with a new plan to suit your needs. So, whether
your event is a summer afternoon in the park, or an evening concert in the Performing Arts Centre,
the NLSO is great way to capture your audiences heart.
Clinics are a casual introduction to the steel pan that can be provided in conjunction with our
concerts. They are usually conducted between sets (during breaks) and last for about 45-60 minutes.
Clinics allow people the opportunity to dabble & get a feel for the steel pan. Some people realize
after a clinic that they are interested in learning more on the steel pan, so for them the clinics
are a starting point on the exhilarating journey of learning a steel pan. For others, it is just a
light moment, a fun little jaunt out of the ordinary, a chance to stretch their imaginations &
try something different.
Workshops offer a group experience in which individuals learn to play several songs on the steel pan.
Our standard program for these workshops includes 12 sessions that span the course of 6 weeks.
These classes are lead out by a head instructor with individual instructors for each person.
By the end of these classes you will have learned to play several songs together with your fellow
classmates as a band.
