University of Akron Steel Drum Band

The music of Trinidad and Tobago, played to perfection on steel drums, summons feelings of endless summers in the sand. And as winter syphons the vitamin D out of Ohioans, the University of Akron Steel Drum Band presents a sonic substitute for UV rays with a performance of joyous melodies straight from the Caribbean. 

Founded by Dr. Larry Snider in 1980—when it was one of the only three college steel drum bands in the country—the University of Akron Steel Drum Band has since perfected the art of the aural vacation. With over 20 percussion majors playing on steel pans crafted by master tuner and composer Cliff Alexis, the group gets audiences moving with their enthusiastic, educational live performances. And as a troupe that truly does their homework, it’s the first U.S. ensemble to travel to Trinidad to learn techniques from local musical masters. The band has also performed for President Bill Clinton, and scored a Grammy nomination for the CD Live at E.J. Thomas Hall.

E.J. Thomas Hall

Since 1973, The University of Akron's E.J. Thomas Hall has been the center of Akron's performing arts scene. The three-level facility, which occupies three acres of The University of Akron campus, boasts a massive, 44-ton movable ceiling that can shift to enclose the first or second levels. The position of the ceiling has a dramatic effect on the hall's volume and acoustics, so it is controlled by a computer precisely managing 27 counterweights. The hall's ability to transform from an intimate one-level performance space to a vast three-level concert hall allows it to host performances of a variety of sizes and styles by university students and faculty as well as the Akron Symphony Orchestra, the Tuesday Musical Association, the Children’s Concert Society, and the Akron Youth Symphony.
