Pop, original compositions and traditional calypso music will be showcased during a Sept. 27 performance by the Appalachian State University Hayes School of Music’s Steely Pan Steel Band.

The 8 p.m. performance will be in the Schaefer Center for the Performing Arts at ASU. Admission is $8. Tickets are available at the center’s box office and at the door. Tickets also are available online at http://purchase.tickets.com/buy/TicketPurchase?organ_val=21217.

The 23-member band is directed by Dr. Scott Meister. The band will perform traditional music from Panorama, the traditional festival for steel pan held during Carnival in Trinidad.

The program includes “Whey De Pan Man” and “Glory,” transcribed by Meister from a Trinidad Steel Band recording. “Hey Soul Sister” by Train will feature sophomore Jonathan Sale on ukulele. The band will also play a calypso version of “Pagliacci” from the opera of the same name.

New on the program will be “Mambo,” written by Dr. Jeff Jones, a former student of Meister who now teaches at Sweet Briar College. Jones was the first graduate to receive a masters of music degree in steel drums from Appalachian.
