PAN O RAMA
The National Panorama Competition took place last Friday at the Darren Sammy Cricket Grounds. Though there were only five bands and a sparse crowd, the supporters were all happy to be in attendance at this phenomenal event.
After students played the national anthem from the Carmen Renee Memorial School, it was straight down to business. Pantime Steel Orchestra from Gros Islet, the three-time defending champions, performed 'Captain Sammy' and set the standard high.
Following an intriguing contest, it was no surprise that Laborie Steel Pan scored the highest with 256 points. In second place was Pantime Steel Orchestra with 248 points. Pantastic Muzik took third place with 229 points. Pan Ambassadors were fourth with 199 points while West Coast Steel Band amassed 191 points.
