Buxton Pride wins Mash Panorama Steel Pan Competition

The Buxton Pride Steel Orchestra has done it again, taking top honours for the second year in a row and in its second showing at the Republic Bank Mashramani Panorama Steel Pan Competition on Sunday at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall. Its supporters erupted with joy when the Chairperson, Russell Lancaster made the announcement of the win in the Large School Band Category at the seventh edition of the annual Steel Pan Competition.

Second place went to North Ruimveldt Secondary while the Bishops’ High came in third. Lancaster stated that the competition was quite close for these performers. For the Small School Band Category, supporters of the Dolphin Secondary School were just as ecstatic as the school’s steel band took the top spot for the first time since it was created in 2009. Lodge Secondary and West Demerara Secondary Schools took second and third place respectively.

Culture Ministry Permanent Secretary Alfred King has revealed that the competition was made possible through the collaborative effort of the Ministry and Republic Bank. He noted that “there has been tremendous growth in the art form in the schools as well as the senior band category”, emphasising that it was as a consequence of strategic planning. Meanwhile, for the Large Band Category, the Parkside Steel Orchestra and the Guyana Police Force Band tied for the number two spot, while the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport copped the first place prize.
