Featured Keynote Artist
The Flying Pans are a student steel pan band from Central College in Iowa. They are directed by assistant professor of music, Stan Dahl. While the members learn traditional Caribbean music, they do not limit themselves to that genre. They are one of the most creative groups on their campus, and they take anyone who is willing to learn.
