Pan Trinbago South/Central Vice Chairman Elton Bain
Counts Down to Historic 2007 South Panorama Finals

 Trinidad & Tobago Steelband Panorama 2007

Trinidad - When Steel Talks got the opportunity to hear from Elton Bain, Vice Chairman, Pan Trinbago, South/Central region, in regard to last Sunday's South Steelband Panorama Showcase which featured bands from the south/central area, and also next Saturday's historic staging of the 2007 National Panorama Finals at Skinner Park, San Fernando in South Trinidad. 

Seventeen of the twenty-one conventional bands expected at the south steelband extravaganza showed up to deliver sweet steel to those who came out.  There was no categorical distinction in size, as participating orchestras fielded a minimum of forty and a maximum of seventy musicians.  Fonclaire emerged winners, followed by Pan Elders, then Skiffle Bunch in third place.  Full results are accessible later in this piece.  All eight of the single pan aka traditional bands registered turned out for the event, with New Age Trendsetters, Pan Revival and Self Help Marines, respectively, topping the category.  The six bands all received trophies.

vice chairman, Pan Trinbago South/Central

The facilities of the Skinner Park venue got its first real test at Sunday's show, and based  on the experience, the stage itself will be widened by Saturday to accommodate the very large steel orchestras in competition.

Among the crowd that turned out were the Minister of Community Development, Culture and Gender Affairs, Joan Yuille-Williams, and Whitfield Weekes, Chairman of Pan Trinbago, South/Central. Both were pleased by what they saw in terms of the facilities and arrangements in place for the national panorama finals on February 17.
