50th Golden Anniversary of Panorama Publication by Pan Trinbago.

“50th Golden Anniversary of Panorama” is the latest publication of Pan Trinbago Inc. T.C. The 110 page “coffee table book” as the title implies is the history of Panorama through the years documented by contributors Selwyn Tarradath, Merle Albino-De Coteau, Dr. Jeanine Remy, the late Ian “Teddy” Belgrave and Esmond King among others.

Pages consist mainly of photographs and illustrations, many of them from private collections eg Majorie Boothman and Commander Jack Williams.  In addition, Steelpan tidbits, trivia, interviews with steelpan personalities and a bit of steelband history complete this edition.

To quote, Keith Diaz, President, Pan Trinbago: ”This magazine appropriately dedicated to the celebration of fifty  (50) years of the Panorama competitions is designed to remind the reader that the steelpan, born in this century, has gone through several stages of development, and in the process emerged to be a musical instrument of excellence…”

Chapters include “How It All Began”, “How Panorama Got Its Name”, “The Panorama Syndrome”, “Arrangeritis”, “The Steelband as a Community Phenomenon”, “A Perspective 50th Anniversary of Panorama”, and “The Digital Pan (Steelpan)Mobile App.  “50th Golden Anniversary of Panorama” is more than just a collector’s item, it is intended to inspire conversation or even stimulate debate.

Edited by David Cuffy and printed by Jhullian Graphics Comm. Ltd, the publication is reasonably priced at TT$60. or US$10. and is available at Pan Trinbago’s Head Office, Park Street, Port of Spain, Trinidad, and at Crosby’s, Cleve’s and Pan Trinbago Regional Offices.
