This July, The Lydians, proudly supported by First Citizens presents “SEASONS OF STEEL – A Lydian Steel 25th Anniversary Celebration” featuring  The Lydian Steel, led by Musical Director Carl Anthony Hines.

Founded in 1996, The Lydian Steel was the vision of the late Dr Pat Bishop T.C. (former Musical Director), as an ensemble of Steelpan players who were music literate and could serve as an ensemble for choral and operatic accompaniment, and perform classical chamber works.  As a legacy of this vision and continued work, founding members have become established composers, arrangers, administrators, and teachers. Though having reached this 25th milestone in 2021, we are now able to appropriately commemorate this achievement with this long-awaited recital concert.

Best known for its flawless execution of classical music on the national instrument over the years, Antonio Vivaldi’s ‘Four Seasons’ is a work near and dear to The Lydian Steel. It was with enthusiasm that we call on the work to lend a natural shape to this commemorative concert.  In this way, The Lydian Steel’s history and evolution, progressing through its own “seasons” will be celebrated and acknowledged. The programme of repertoire will reflect this, with varied offerings interwoven with and bookended by memorable excerpts of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.

Seasons of Steel will be a delight for pan lovers, and those yet to become pan lovers, non-pan lovers, concert enthusiasts, and Lydian fans in general. With music ranging from baroque to contemporary and everything in between, it will feature some of your favourite Lydian soloists and a small choral ensemble. Patrons will also be treated to arrangements/collaborations from special guests Chantal Esdelle and Moyenne, and work from Lydian regulars: Astra Noel, Kareem Brown, Kwesi Moore and Carl Anthony Hines.

You don’t want to miss Seasons of Steel! Saturday, July 16th (7:00 PM) and Sunday, July 17th(5:30 PM) at Queen’s Hall.
