On May 13th 2017, Isthmus Instruments hosted the first handpan gathering in the midwest. The focus of the gathering was to bring together people who share interest handpans. All experience levels were welcomed- from attendees never having touched an instrument before, to experienced players wanting to learn more. Several technique workshops were hosted by Mark D'Ambrosio , Shlomo Calvo and Maxwell Edison Johnson. The following video recap was made possible by Tony Meister of Chameleon Communications in Milwaulkee, WI. Thanks to all that attended, participated, and shared in the love & learning of this instrument! We at Isthmus Instruments are looking forward to continuing to build the community through future gatherings. Your input is always appreciated. Happy Summer Everyone!
