In New York

New York - When Steel Talks caught up with Patrick Arnold, President of Pan Trinbago, the world governing body for Steelpan, in New York. Arnold is here for the home stretch in the preparations of the 2005 World Steelband Music Festival (WSMF). "Everything is going fine; everything is in place, really," said a satisfied-sounding Patrick Arnold, adding that competing steel orchestras are expected in the Big Apple from around 16-17 June. The Pan Trinbago president went to say that all the steel orchestras will be accommodated at LaGuardia Airport Courtyard by Marriott, (the Marriott Hotel), East Elmhurst, Queens, New York.

The WSMF Secretariat is into heavy marketing and promotion from their interim New York base; Arnold made mention of thrusts via the various media, including newspapers, radio and television outreaches.
