The UT Steel Pan Ensemble is an outreach organization within the Butler School of Music's Percussion Department. The ensemble is based on the competition bands that originated in Trinidad and Tobago throughout the latter half of the 20th century. Made up of undergraduate and graduate students who are studying in nearly every college in the university, the Steel Pan Ensemble is a diverse group with a variety of repertoire. From the traditional calypso and soca styles of Trinidad and Tabago to today's pop music, the group consists of over 12 players and nearly 28 steel pans.
