PK HUMMINGBIRD STEEL ORCHESTRA

In 1998, Kay Charles introduced the members of the youth group she was leading to steel pan music lessons offered by Patrick Nunes. They took to it like ducks to water. The youth named the group PK Hummingbird and met twice per week to learn steel pan music. In 2000, PK Hummingbird was invited to participate in the Niagara Folk Arts Festival. In 2018, PK Hummingbird is celebrating 20 years of offering free steel drum music lessons to youth and their families of the Niagara Region.

PK Hummingbird has been offering free music lessons to all youth of Niagara since 1998.

Some past performances:

  • Thorold Santa parade
  • Pelham Summerfest
  • Balls Falls Thanksgiving Festival
  • Fort Erie Friendship Festival
  • Chatham Market Days
  • Hamilton Easter Seals Regatta
  • Princess Detroit Caribbean Dinner Cruise

PK Hummingbird holds practice sessions in Thorold South. For more information, Google PK Hummingbird, new members are welcomed all year round.
