PANgea is seeking funds to help cover annual steel drum tuning costs of $2,000.
Each year, PANgea performs at many events throughout the Lincoln community. In order to keep the steel drums in tune with each other, we must bring in a specialist to hand-hammer each note for all of our steel drums. This is a delicate and time-intensive process that only a handful of people in the U.S. are qualified to do.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and limited performance opportunities, PANgea was unable to have the steel pans tuned this year. We hope to raise funds for this expense so that we can have them tuned prior to the 2021-2022 performing season.
Founded in 2003, PANgea is the only group of its kind in Nebraska. We provide unique musical opportunities to middle and high school students throughout the city of Lincoln while serving as an ambassador for LPS and the arts within our public schools. There is no budget allotted for PANgea. As a result, performances and donations help sustain the group.
Thank you for considering a gift to PANgea! Requesting $2,000 plus cost reimbursement.
