Ouachita Baptist University will host the Tiger Steel Drum Ensemble in its fall concert on Wednesday, Dec. 10, at 7:30 p.m. in Mabee Fine Art Center’s McBeth Recital Hall. The performance is free and open to the public.
Founded in spring 2013, Tiger Steel includes student musicians from several academic schools across campus. Directed by Dr. Ryan Lewis, Tiger Steel specializes in performing calypso and soca music from the Caribbean nation of Trinidad and Tobago – the birthplace of steel drums – but also performs a variety of styles from jazz, pop and rock to classical, funk and Latin. This semester’s performance will keep this traditional feel and apply it to some American favorites.
