Steel drum band receives honor

The MAST Steel Drum Band has been given the opportunity to perform for the Miami Dolphin’s Fundraiser for the Cancer Research Fundraising Program on Thursday, October 30. The band will be performing downtown at the 200 Biscayne Building, only a few miles from the school campus.

The program selected MAST Academy out of all Miami-Dade county bands and professional bands to perform at this event. The band will play a variety of music for the sponsors and players throughout the event, along with pieces played by pianist Diego Arevalo, over a two-hour period.

“It’s quite an honor to have been asked by the Miami Dolphins to take part in this important event,” Dr. Cayce Benton, teacher and conductor of the band, said. The band will be able to take pictures with the football players who will also be attending.
