The students, who are taught by noted local pannist Earl La Pierre, participated in Toronto’s Caribana Festival, played alongside musicians from Cayman steel pan bands Panoramers and UCCI Pandemix. They took part in the festival’s Pan Alive steel pan competition, joining forces with players from Trinidad, Bermuda, the U.S. (North Carolina) and Canada (Toronto) under the band name Afropan.

Afropan, comprised of 67 musicians, is in its 40th year playing as a group, and proudly finished second, missing out on first place by just three points to last year’s winners, Pan Fantasy.
