Featured Project

Our featured project right now is GLSF18. This is our sixth year for this annual event and we are really excited!

Typically, we bring in school bands from around the midwest to have fun with us but not this year. This year, we are can’t wait to showcase all of our amazing students!! That’s right, we have enough students in our four different steelbands that we decided to make this year a local showcase!

In addition to showing off the amazing talent of our students, we are still bringing in incredible guest artists from around the world. For GLSF18 our guests include:

  • Kurry Seymour – World renown educator and steelpan education trailblazer
  • Gregory Boyd – Unbelievable blues panist from Denmark that blew us all away last time he was here for GLSF16
  • The Original Delta Fireballs featuring Geneva Red – Legendary blues duo of Geneva Red and Jackie 5 & Dime that will leave the audience speechless.

All this excitement takes place at Creekside Middle School in Woodstock on April 14, at 7:00 PM.

Your support helps cover the costs of renting the space at Creekside Middle School, bringing artists out, housing artists, newly commissioned music, insurance, advertising, food for the guests, and more.
