Utopia Pan Soul In Our Thoughts
When Steel Talks extends its sincere regrets to
the members of Utopia Pan Soul: The Next Generation as we add our
voice in total solidarity with those of the world steelband community on
condemning the actions of the individuals or individual who would dare to
destroy any musicians instruments... In addition, we salute the pan organizations and
individuals who have come together globally to publicize the unfortunate
situation, and offer to
assistance to Utopia Pan Soul...
Sesame Flyers off to a "Flying Start"
For 2004, Sesame Flyers Steel Orchestra is off to a flying start, and is one of the first bands set up in their newly-secured space for the 2004 Pan season. Located at 3607 Church Avenue, (between Brooklyn Ave. & East 39th St.) Brooklyn, New York, pannists were already practicing last week.
Last year was an extremely taxing one for the youth-oriented steel orchestra, as they struggled to secure an outdoor rehearsal area/pan yard, in preparation for the 2003 Pan season. It was about one week before the major Panorama competition at the end of August, that they were afforded a last-minute outdoor pan yard, but the ordeal had taken its toll.
All Work And No Play (Yet)
Defending Panorama Champs Pantonic Steel Orchestra put away the pan sticks
and picked up the drill, shovel, nails and hammers... Working
through the rain, mud and cold, the Pantonic family showed that they are
much more than a steel orchestra, as they designed and laid the foundation
for their new rehearsal area/panyard... No one was spared from the
labour-intensive work as Pantonic's captains and top panmen constructed
what will be soon known as the 'Pan Diamond'... click for full story
