  • Well done Dr Remy! Congratulations and big up to you for repping panwomen everywhere!
    • Thank you. But I am humble.
  • well between you and the conductor of silver stars you had the energy of a drum major, nice idea to keep the rythym section free of pans, the energy of the band comes from both you and the engine room, a food for thought for people hoping to beat Silver Stars in panorama, it is not just the music, but how it is delivered by the band, people will allways steups and complain after competitions especially in pan, but if the band does not produce the music, how can a judge judge it balance interpretation, dynamics general effects will help a judge to appreciate your musical structure if you can grab thier attention, the theatrics made looked like Soca monarch or something
  • well done dr. u made the entire music dept. at uwi proud...
  • congrats Jeanine ain't heard the performance but I believe in new blood, the old stagers are getting lacadasical, complacent and redundant. I hope this will wake them up
  • It is interesting to have seen another female arranger follow the footsteps of Dr Pat Bishop. I would like to have her in the United states for Steel Summer series of Concerts and workshops this summer. Her name was mentioned to me by Mr Ray Funk in our conversation just last week. I can be contacted at email
    • I do not know Dr. Pat Bishop's email address off-hand. Mine is
  • This is a great moment for you in the steelband world and keep it up.
