LIVE !! Toronto All Stars Steel Orchestra performs in Florence at the Loggia dei Lanzi. It is a famous open air museum. Florence is the birthplace of the Renaissance art era and its artists love of the body and the human form are evident in the paintings and sculptures displayed in the museums. Also very apparent is how art and science are combined to express creativity through the artwork. It was moving to be able to perform for a packed audience at such a historical venue and to represent steelpan in the process. We were thrilled to be able to share the art of steelpan with the florentines and the tourists there.This particular piece is called “I’m Alive” by Celine Dion. It was interpreted from the original arrangement of the late Edwin Pouchet.
