First Church hosts a seasonal Community Steelband taught by The University of Akron Percussion Instructor, Matt Dudack.

Current Opportunity

Our Steelpan Band is ready to return! We are looking for anyone of high school age and older who may be interested in helping us fill out the band for rehearsals on Sunday mornings from September 18 to November 6 between worship services from 10am to 10:50am. The rehearsals will culminate in a performance on November 6 at the 11am Festival service. Whether you are a master musician or unable to carry a tune, all are welcome and invited to participate in this free opportunity. There is a role for everyone! Space is limited, so contact us if you’d like to participate or if you have any questions.
