The concert will be dedicated to one of the legends and pioneers in the steelpan world, Clifford Alexis. After 30 years of service, Cliff has officially announced his retirement from Northern Illinois University. He also will be receiving an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters (L.H.D.) degree from NIU on May 12!

The program will include Cliff's compositions and arrangements, and "We Are Conquerors" by Liam Teague - a 2017 Panorama arrangement performed by PCS Nitrogen Silver Stars!

Please attend the NIU Steelband Tribute to Cliff Alexis concert on Sunday April 30th, 2017 at 3:00pm (CST), as we celebrate the work of this legendary musician, steelpan craftsman, tuner, teacher, and pioneer!

There will be a pre-concert lecturer by Dr. Andrew Martin at 1:30pm.

Sending all of my love to Cliff Alexis, Liam Teague, and all of the past and current Steel Band members representing today! Steel Band was honestly one of the best experiences of my entire life. I was incredibly blessed to play bass along side some insanely talented and legendary band members under the mentorship of Yuko Asada as my section leader. Wish I could be there, but you know I'm dancing behind those bass pans with my hair in ribbons and braids in spirit! I'll be watching the Live Webcast as much as I can. Miss you all so much!
