The band continues to thrive under the direction of Dr. Stephen Barnhart, Professor at Hayes School of Music at App State. Whether entertaining crowds at the Center’s Celebration of the Arts festival or at their annual dinner theater events, Steely Pan is always one of the Hiddenite Arts & Heritage Center’s most popular performances.

This special evening of music is provided through the Center and the Sharpe Chair of Fine and Applied Arts of Appalachian State University. The Sharpe Chair of Fine and Applied Arts was established and is funded by Hiddenite Arts & Heritage Center founders, the late R.Y. and Eileen Lackey Sharpe.
