The University of Arizona

UA Steel Bands Concert

UA Steel Bands will present its first concert of the 2012-2013 season.

The University of Arizona Steel Band program is comprised of two steel bands, UASteel and Blue Steel. The steel band program was founded in 1987 by professor Gary Cook and then-doctoral student, Jeannine Remy. Borne from a small group of personal steel drums, the band now has more than 50 instruments and involves students from across the campus. Eric Hines is the current director of the UA Steel Band program.

UA Steel is dedicated to the preservation and expansion of the steel pan art form. The band plays many styles of music, several with Caribbean roots of soca, calypso and reggae as well as classical, contemporary jazz, pop or whatever music the members think should be given a chance to earn the privilege of being interpreted by the steel pan.
