Music in the Garden - Pan Dulce Steel Orchestra
Come enjoy the infectiously joyful music of the Pan Dulce Steel Orchestra. This 16 piece band has been delighting Humboldt audiences for 20 years with traditional Calypso/Soca infused with Jazz and World Beat styles. Directors Kate and John Salazar, started the band in 1999, inspired by their own experiences playing with 120 piece bands in Trinidad and Tobago. It was their dream to recreate the spirit of the panyard here on the North Coast, teaching students in the traditional rote style of the Caribbean. Hearing this music in the majestic setting of the Humboldt Botanical Gardens will be a treat for all. You can’t not like steel drums! The Garden opens at 10 a.m., the music begins at 1 o’clock. These concerts are held the first and third Sunday through August and are a wonderful opportunity to experience the Garden in a new way. Bring your family, a picnic lunch and lounge on the lawn and take in the sounds of local bands before touring the Garden or the Butterfly House. General admission for non-members. Children under 6 and active military are free. This activity is FREE to HBG members, PLEASE NOTE: We ask that you keep your four legged friends at home.
