New York - One week after panorama, Brooklynites were afforded a chance to catch their last drop of pan music for the summer season.  The venue, Brooklyn's Prospect Park under the “The Peristyle” provided an excellent stage and acoustical enclosure for this mini-unplugged concert.  General park visitors and show attendees were treated to  high-caliber steelband performances that covered a wide variety of musical genres.

 The event promoters (Women In Steel, Pantonic, Unique Sounds & J'Ouvert City Alliance) billed the event as Rhythm and Steel in The Park - An End-of-Summer Family Cultural and Informational Day.  Labor day marks the unofficial end of summer for New Yorkers, as the large 100-player steelband music sides go into hibernation and give way to their smaller-size stage side brethren.  This year's version of the annual end-of-summer showcase for the steelbands featured Utopia Pan Soul: the Next Generation and Higher Levin Steel Orchestra.

For about two hours the steelbands entertained the audience who in return showered the groups with applause.
