Trinidad & Tobago, W.I. - Following the success of their most recent concert in July 2017, the Codrington Pan Family is back with another dynamic night of entertainment for the entire family!
‘De Legacy’ the concert, will be held on Saturday October 14th, 2017 at TLC, UWI (University of The West Indies). The show, which begins at 7:00 p.m., will feature performances by the Soul Oasis Cultural Ambassadors (S.O.C.A.) and of course, hosts Codrington Pan Family.
It is the first concert to feature the Codringtons’ re-branded look, which is in keeping with the ensemble’s strong commitment to family and community. It is also indicative of the Codringtons’ sterling contributions to the international music industry by way of the steelpan. In 2015, the group was the first steelband to premiere at the legendary SXSW in Texas.
On a more sober note the concert is also being hosted to assist the ensemble’s founder, Mr. Cary Codrington with medical expenses related to his treatments for cancer.
To date, Cary is the only arranger to have taken birdsong Steel Orchestra to a large band national panorama final. In 1999, he founded the Codrington Pan Family, from which his children, Keisha and Khari are remembered for their historic feat at the Pan is Beautiful XII Steelband Music Festival. Their other siblings, Kareem and Kaijah are also involved in steelpan tuning and manufacturing.
For tickets and inquiries contact the Codrington Pan Family at 1 (868) 477-2852. Tickets can also be purchased locally at Simon’s Musical Supplies at #20 Borde Street, Port-of-Spain.
