Boys & Girls Clubs of the Blue Ridge and Pan United Youth Movement embarked on a journey in the Spring of 2010 to reach children in the Martinsville/Henry County area through involvement in steel drum music by offering them a chance at success and a glimpse of new possibilities for their future.
The mission of the Virginia All Steel Orchestra (VASO) is to enhance character and leadership skills through performing arts. We develop different skills such as Music Theory, Technical Skills, Care and Maintenance of the Instrument and teach the history of the Steel Pan. Throughout the past 3 years club members in VASO have built a repertoire of music including but not limited to; classical, jazz standards, pop, Latin, calypso, reggae and Christmas music.
The Virginia All Steel Orchestra was invited to perform on the Water Sight Stage at Downtown Disney World on December 27, 2013. This performance will be free to the public and will start at 5:45 pm EST. We will be streaming the performance live and a link will be on our website the day of the event.
With your help the members of VASO will be able to enjoy a lifetime experience performing in Disney World. Also while in Disney the members of VASO will be able to enjoy the many different rides and attractions that Disney World has to offer.
Please help us get to Disney!
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge VASO faces after we play at Disney World is how will we continue to raise money for future performances. To overcome this challenge with help from community leaders and future Kickstarter donors we will be successful.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
