No Pan in the 21st Century/Pan Down Memory Lane for 2011

Trinidad & Tobago, W.I. - Pan Trinbago has officially notified its membership - and the public - that due to a “fall in sponsorship,” a decision has been taken to shelve this year’s staging of the Pan Down Memory Lane and Pan in the 21st Century competitions customarily held in May.

Pan Trinbago will  instead produce a show on June 18th 2011 at the Grand Stand, Queen’s Park Savannah, Port of Spain, with some of the past winners of Pan Down Memory Lane and Pan in the 21st Century competitions.  This will be a show in tribute to the Fathers in the “land of Pan” - Trinidad & Tobago.

Last year, Sforzata Steel Orchestra from east Trinidad triumphed in Pan in the 21st Century.  Playing Jeannine Remy’s arrangement of Jazmine Sullivan’s Bust Your Windows, Sforzata copped the title and money purse of TT $100,000.00.  The very literal visual of the windscreen of a car being “busted” on stage at the end of the group’s performance remains a vivid memory for the show’s audience. The musical battle fielded twelve of the country’s most noted steel orchestras who had made it to the finals.
