Interested in seeing what an NLSO rehearsal is like? - The orchestra members love an audience, which means we love it when people come to visit us. But it tends to bring out the performer in us & that can be distracting if we are in the middle of a learning cycle. So, if you would like to come visit, contact us & we can arrange a time that works for you and for us.

Northern Lights Steel Orchestra at Your School

We feel privileged to be able to go into schools & introduce kids to the bright, lively sound of the steel pan, to awaken student?s minds to their creative nature, while promoting the development of motor, learning & listening skills. We also offer these performances by themselves for schools that may not have enough time or space to dedicate to a complete workshop, but would still like to show their students something new & exciting.


Workshop Performance

It is a great opportunity to demonstrate the capabilities of the steel pan & to expose students to instruments & music they may not be familiar with. Although, we prefer to open with at least a small concert to help inspire students minds, we are willing to work it in at a different time if needed. We like to open school workshops with a live performance by the orchestra. This will help us to decide on the size of the NLSO Performance Group.
