On December 3 at 8 p.m., Oberlin Steel (OSteel) takes to the Finney Chapel stage for the first time in 13 years, bringing with them steel pan virtuoso Leon Foster Thomas. Thomas, currently based in Florida, originally hails from Trinidad, where steel pan music was created. In addition to his chops on the steel pan, Thomas also excels as a jazz musician, percussionist, and composer. Alongside Thomas, OSteel will perform music composed by Thomas himself.

The show is free of charge and is guaranteed to get the audience on its feet. It is also one of the last chances to see OSteel perform before they head off to Trinidad to see where steel pan began. For more information about the event, click here.
