June 16, 2013: Performance Tour in England and The Netherlands!
Global Drums Steel Band will give a performance and hands-on workshop at the Royal College of Music in London, England on June 19 at 5:00 PM. We will represent Canada at the Netherlands International Steel Band Festival on June 22, sharing the stage with steel bands from all over Europe and Trinidad. The ten day tour ends in Paris on June 24 when The group returns to Canada.
Graduate Assistant Joe Porter and Director Adam Mason will also give a World Drumming clinic at the Birmingham Conservatoire in England.
We are excited to play alongside some amazing steel bands and seeing the sights of London, Amsterdam and Paris. Following our Trinidad Tour last summer, Europe will be an another amazing experience of a lifetime.
We are looking for assistance in off-setting some of the cost of this tour through a Peerbackers (similar to Kickstarter) campaign as many of our students are pushing their budgets to the limit to take advantage of this once in a lifetime opportunity. If you wish to support with even a couple dollars, every bit counts! Please visit our campaign to donate!
