Music, Activities for Children and More!

The magical sound of steel drums will revitalize students and their parents in a free back-to-school event at the Bankhead Theater on August 11th. Held on the last Friday before the 2017-2018 school year begins for students in the Tri-Valley, the final celebration of the summer will feature a performance on the steel drums by Shawn Thwaites inside the Bankhead lobby.

A Trinidadian-American musician and educator from Washington D.C., Thwaites is an innovator in the music of the steel drum creating a distinct sound that intertwines jazz, hip-hop, funk, calypso, reggae and more. He has performed at the Kennedy Center and Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., as well as numerous other prestigious venues and is the founder of the Shawn Thwaites Rebel Quartet.

In addition to Thwaites’ performance, there will be other activities for children and stations with information about local educational programs. Free ice cream treats will be served. The back-to-school event is sponsored by Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center.
