CSA Steel Band and All University Steel Band Garner Nice Review
NIU Community School of the Arts Steel Band
Recently, a few facets of the steel pan program at the NIU School of Music performed in concert and the program prompted a great review in the noted online pan publication When Steel Talks. The review notes the participation in the concert by the Community School of the Arts Steel Band, the All-University Steel Band, and the majors in the steel pan studio.
Among other glowing remarks, the review states, "NIU has had no shortage of developing and graduating awesome talent that have gone on to accomplish great things in the music community. As one witnesses and listens to the active directorship, musical works and performances of Yuko Asada, Josanne Francis & Khan Cordice in addition to their leadership skills - you immediately realize you are observing a very special crew whose impact on the steelpan music world will be felt for years to come."
