Backyard Theater for Kids:
Positive Vibrations Youth Steel Orchestra

This award-winning ensemble captivates kids with the lush, radiant sounds of the steelpan. A group of 25-30 energetic young musicians, based in Prince George’s County as part of the Cultural Academy for Excellence (CAFÉ), PVYSO has wowed audiences at the Kennedy Center, the Zora Neale Hurston Festival, the Virginia Beach Panorama Festival, among many others. Now they’ll bring the warmth of the Caribbean to our own backyard!
