Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music
Kingstown, St. Vincent & the Grenadines W.I. - Even with the threat of inclement weather, nothing could dampen the spirits of supporters of the steelpan art form and lovers of steelpan music - and the younger generation of pan players who would be taking the field, literally, at Carnival City Victoria Park in Kingstown, St. Vincent. Twelve bands - six community-based and six school-based - competed in their respective categories in the 2011 Junior Pan Fest on Sunday. Families had been on the grounds as early as 2:00 p.m. to enjoy to the fullest, the mini-fair which preceded the steelpan show. The mini-fair featured many children-friendly activities including face-painting, trampolines, and more.
The audience first witnessed the school-based orchestras with CW Prescod Primary taking the stage at 4:35 p.m. as band number one, with twenty players and Keslon “Taffa” Wilson as arranger.
