The music of the Mission Vista Steel Drum Ensembles cannot be contained! With a repertoire spanning from 70's Funk, to classical music, to Nat King Cole, to Frank Sinatra and hard core rock ‘n’ roll, this is beyond what you'd expect from a public high school music program! Experience our music on
Come to our next performance on Sat April 7 @ Noon at Seaport Village in San Diego!
The Mission Vista High School Steel Drum program is unique and truly, one of a kind as the students collectively contribute to the rehearsal and music selection and arrangement process. This program includes Steel Drum 1 and 1.5 in the fall, and a Steel Drum 2 in the spring. The students arrange all their own music, facilitated by their teacher as they apply creativity and their knowledge of music theory. It's a student driven class where the kid's creativity shines in everything they do.
The students in the Steel Drum Ensembles are encouraged to create and actively participate and engage in leading and learning in and through music and the ensemble experience.
