Congratulations Mia, been following since you caught our attention with your performance of Flight of The Bumblebees "

Woman is boss
Expecting great things from her

Birdsong deserves a place in the finals

Lets look at the history here, is she the first woman to arrange for a large steelband? is she the youngest person [ male or female] to do the job?

Cecil, I'm sure that information can be verified. "Accomplished pannist Mia Gormandy is the only female arranger in this category for 2017 and she chose birdsong to create history." Where are the Pan Historians when yuh need them?

Others might say this woman got "balls" yuh come into this battle and yuh want to start in the big league? Yuh have to creep before yuh walk, since when, yuh get to pick and choose? My guess is she want to separate from the rest in Pan "King" dom.

Andre White is the youngest - Desperadoes 2012

Merle Albino-de Coteau arranges for Chase Manhattan Savoy - first woman to arrange a Panorama piece 1969

Geraldine Connor arranged for Invaders in 1984

Shenelle Abraham is the first woman to arrange for a large orchestra category - Skiffle  - 2012

Incorrect on the last point-- Jeanine Remy arranged for Hatters in 2005 when they were still large.

Okay Noah. 

You got me.  Thanks

One day I'm going to get one past you lol.

bugs

Thanks Bugs.

Cecil: Since we now know that bugs is a PAN HISTORIAN EXTRAORDINAIRE I am going to set up an interview with MY PRESIDENT to hire bugs as RESIDENT PAN HISTORIAN at the PAN TRINBAGO head offices. But he must sign a confidentiality agreement promising NOT TO DO like Byron Serrette and steal state secrets.

He can also be an excellent judge.

Good start Mia...great example for our women panists...
