The Keene Theater, East Quad
701 E. University Ave.
Free and open to the public
Center for World Performance Studies will host Jonathan Scales, one of the most innovative steel pannists on the planet, redefining and challenging traditional expectations of his signature instrument. In his hands, the sonic palette of an instrument often associated with cruise ships and tropical resorts is radically expanded to mimic the role of horns, piano, vibraphone or marimba due to his stunning, virtuosic technique.
Although Scales’ writing produces songs that are ultimately accessible and danceable, the compositions can be remarkably complex and difficult to perform. As a result, the power trio whimsically named Jonathan Scales Fourchestra has always had a fluid lineup of top-notch musicians.
Guests entering the Keene Theater must wear a face covering.
