Being a St. Scholastica Saint is many things — for us it is all about Being the Groove. We are the Saints Drum Line, Steel Band, World Drumming Ensemble and Vocal Revolution. Together we represent a diverse group of learners from all parts of the College, but we are united by our passion for making music. On April 16th at the St. Paul campus at 6:30, we all want to share that passion with you. Come experience first hand what it's like to play in a West African Drum ensemble, try out some Samba Batucada instruments from Brazil, hear up close the fantastic sound of a Steel Drum band that comes to you via Duluth from Trinidad & Tobago. How about a chance to "try on" a drum and play with the students in the Saints Drumline? And to top it off, the "classics" and latest hits arranged for a sixteen piece vocal ensemble!
Join us for an evening of free food and entertainment — get to know our groove, get to know us, get to know CSS!
