Junior Steelband Panorama 2012 unfolds - Grenada’s biggest-ever!

Grenada's national flag

Global -  While their senior compatriots flex their musical muscles in the second week of August, it will be the turn of Grenada’s junior steel pan players one week earlier, when steel orchestras fielding multitudes of the country’s younger steel pan musicians take the stage for their turn in the spotlight.

With eight junior bands scheduled to take part in the August 4 event, it is on track to be Grenada’s biggest junior national Panorama to date.  Just around 400 young panists between the ages of six and nineteen years old will showcase their skills on steelpan instruments in this year’s junior competition. 

Defending their title are members of Angel Harps Junior Steel Orchestra.  They are six-time Junior Pan champs:  1995, 1996, 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2011.  They will take the stage with seventy-four players, where the young ladies best their male counterparts in terms of presence - numbering 56 and 18, respectively.
