Blue Pan Jam
The Blue Pan Jam, a steel drum ensemble, is made up of selected 4th & 5th grade students at AES. They play music that is a mixture of calypso, gospel, jazz, African and rock ‘n roll. Not only do they play 5 different styles and sizes of steel pans, they also play percussion, sing, and dance. This group entertains at area festivals, many different school performances throughout the state, and conferences such as the SC School Media Conference, SC Art Educators, SC Association of Adult Education, the SC Association of Office Assistants, and the South Carolina Teachers of the Year. In 2002, this performing group helped Aynor Elementary to be named a Grammy Gold Signature School for Excellence in Elementary Music, the only school in South Carolina to do so. They are under the direction of Mrs. Connie Christy, a former Horry County Teacher of the Year and U.S.A. Today All-Star Teacher Team.
