Friday, May 12, starting at 7:00 pm, the Meade High School Steel Drum Band will be presenting a concert with renown steel pannist and recording artist Victor Provost. The concert will be held at Meade High School, located at 1100 Clark Road, Ft. George Meade, Maryland 20755, which has public access via Annapolis Rd. This event is open to the public.
“Victor Provost is widely regarded as one of the world’s leading voices on the unique, and often misunderstood, steel pan (or steel drum). Through appearances at concert halls, clubs, and stages throughout the world, he has been meticulously developing a reputation as a dazzling soloist, crafting an impressive improvisational voice and style. With a strong foundation in Bebop, a contemporary sensibility, and deep roots in Caribbean music, he seamlessly melds and mixes genres.
Provost will be teaching a steel drum clinic with the high school students for several days leading up to the concert on May 12th.
