The Steel Pan Orchestra is a group designed to give students an enjoyable experience of playing Caribbean calypso and soca as well as more modern arrangements. It is an unconventionally laid out instrument and although, like any percussion instrument, does not require intonation, it does require an ear as the main form of learning is as they do in Trinidad – by rote. There is always sheet music there but the emphasis is on learning your part whilst listening to others. No experience necessary and you do not have to be a percussionist to play!
Pandemonium is not an auditioning ensemble. Priority however, is given to returning members (due to number limitations) to allow for further development and progress of the ensemble within the university and community.
