Talented panists, Denise Als and Richard Cornelius, will teach you about the origins of the Steelpan and the variety of sounds that they make. Of course, that’s not all. In this fourteen-minute demonstration, you get an introduction carnival with a taste of the costumes and how it all comes together.
Through virtual tours, digitized artifacts, hands-on activities, stories, and a live video interactive presentation, this inquiry-based education program helps students immerse themselves into historical experiences that offer unique opportunities to experience our shared living heritage. Students will explore Oakville’s relationship with the United States in the context of the Underground Railroad.
