Robert Greenidge
Arranger,
Pan Knights Steel Orchestra
2005 T&T Panorama Season
 


 

Date: 1.11.05

Continuing the When Steel Talks  series of interviews with the arrangers for the 2005 Panorama season in Trinidad and Tobago, Robert Greenidge, arranger for  Pan Knights Steel Orchestra is next in the line up of exclusives.   As is characteristic of all the pan yards, the case is no different in terms of the excitement that is being generated amongst the players and arrangers alike.   With the first phase of competition - the preliminaries - beginning from Thursday January, 13 for the conventional steel orchestras in the large band category, Greenidge is looking forward to the performance of his band and shares the infectious youthful enthusiasm of his musicians.

Pan Knights' tune of choice is Shurwayne Winchester's Dead Or Alive, new for 2005.  Like some of the arrangers this year, they did not take up the new opportunity to "go back in time" and select a tune from past years.  Greenidge says he enjoys the challenge, excitement and novelty of arranging new material.  He is not adamantly against the concept though, like other arrangers When Steel Talks  spoke to about this development.  However like them, he did note that the concept followed along similar lines as other pan music events occurring later in the year. 

Robert is a recognized and successful recorded and performing  steelpan artiste in his own right, and is renowned around the world.   This year his schedule allows him to stay in Trinidad until the end of the Carnival season, then he leaves on February 8 to resume his other professional commitments as a solo artist and as part of the Jimmy Buffet lineup. 

Preliminary judging begins in pan yards on January 13.
