The Pan-Atlantic Concert was inspirational.

The Centre College Steel Band, African Drum Ensemble, and Centre College Dance all collaborated last night to perform our fall concert titled “Pan-Atlantic.” Special thanks to our college president Dr. John Roush and registrar Tim Culhan for attending!

Justin Cornelison’s African Drum Ensemble was fantastic! Featured pieces from Ghana, Guinea, and Senegal included Fuma, Gahu, Rose Rhythm, and Wali. These students made a ton of improvement throughout the semester and had a blast doing so!

My students did a terrific job with challenging versions of Bamboo Tamboo, a samba batucada, and an original steel band chart titled, “Island Dreaming.” I can’t wait to do more of this in the spring!
