Panorama goes global

It is a month since this year’s Carnival weekend yet still excitement continues in the steelband world. Pan Trinbago has a lot of events planned for the remainder of this year and 2015, with the most ambitious being the staging of the first-ever international Panorama contest next year.

Pan Trinbago launched the logo for the International Conference and Panorama (ICP) last Wednesday at the National Academy for the Performing Arts (Napa), Port-of-Spain. Heading the list of dignitaries at the formal function were President Anthony Carmona; Arts and Multiculturalism Minister Dr Lincoln Douglas; Speaker Wade Mark; Caricom Ambassador Sir Edwin Carrington; and, UWI Pro-Vice Chancellor/principal Prof Clement Sankat. The ICP logo is designed by 28-year-old Chevon Le Gendre, assisted by Kalesh Forde.

The intent of the ICP, tentatively scheduled for August 15, is to establish T&T as the mecca of pan and Panorama. The central image of the logo is a steelpan, surrounded by the flags of countries to be invited. Among the expected invitees are bands from the USA, UK, Canada, Nigeria, Israel, Australia and every pan-playing nation of the Caribbean. Some of the rules of the competition are that just one arranger will be permitted per band, and no musician can play for two bands. Bands will also be limited to 60 players.
