Come and enjoy the sweet sounds of the exquisite steel drum and help us kick off the Summer Reading Club, all while celebrating Caribbean American Heritage Month.   Professional musician and educator Joseph John Peck takes workshop participants through a cultural and historical overview of the steelpan instrument.  He performs selections, shares his stories of performing with a 120-piece steelpan orchestra and leads the group in a hands-on percussion performance demonstrating the Engine Room of a carnival steelpan ensemble.
