At Carolina Forrest Elementary we have two performing percussion groups: Taiko, and Steel Band.
Taiko is a Japanese musical art form that combines percussion and movement into a beautiful rhythmic performance. Our Taiko ensemble rehearses before school every day and learns several pieces of music throughout the year.
Steel Band comes from the Caribbean and uses steel pans made from oil drums to create wonderful island grooves. Our Steel Band rehearses after school and hopes to perform several times this year.
We are very lucky at CFE to have all the instruments and talent necessary for these ensembles. Hopefully you can come see us perform!
