The Pantasia Steel Band will play at a free concert on Sunday, August 27th at 6:00 p.m. at the Mennonite Memorial Home, 410 W. Elm St., Bluffton. MMH has hosted the annual “Concert on the Lawn” since 2005. The Mennonite Home Communities of Ohio Service Group will serve Bluffton Dari Freeze ice cream, compliments of the Bluffton Dari Freeze! Special thanks is given to Everence, who is sponsoring this year’s concert. There will not be seating provided so those attending are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and dress for the weather.
Of all the musical instruments in the world there seem to be few that can compare to the unique qualities of the steel drum. Originated in Trinidad, the steel drum is virtually an “infant” among musical instruments, having had its creation and evolution occur only since 1945.
Since their inception in the spring of 1997, Pantasia has garnered an impressive reputation as an educational and entertaining instrumental music ensemble. They are always in high demand, averaging over 40 performances a year.
In case of heavy rain, the concert will be cancelled. Visit the MHCO Facebook page the day of the concert at facebook.com/MHCOhio/ for updated information.
