Trinidad & Tobago, W.I. - ....Twenty-one steel orchestras - ten in the medium band category and eleven in the large category - regaled steelpan lovers with music, in an event that brought the curtains down on yet another year of determined and fierce preparation and competition in the annual steelband music ritual known as Panorama.
....Interesting to note, that it is not only the orchestras in the medium and large categories which retained their championship titles; this scenario played out across the board for the entire 2012 Panorama season.
I enjoyed ALL 21 orchestras as a GRAND concert that featured great music, fantastic arrangements, unbelievable dexterity and near-perfect tonal quality. How much better can PAN become? Saving my coins for the 2013 on-site 'Mecca of Pan & Calypso' experience. Thanks Pan Times & WST.
It is a great idea to carry the competition live on line and thus available to a wider audience.
congratulations to both band ,especially to my dear friend band, Katzenjammers......time for hurrayyyyy.... greetings ,from philippines
