Pan challenge for private sector
As we approach the 2013 Carnival season, it is important to note that next year will mark the 50th anniversary of our National Panorama competition.
It would be very interesting to see if the private sector will come on board and make a meaningful contribution to the National Panorama finals by making the competition a success through a donation of, say, $50,000 to all finalists in each category — Large, Medium, Small and Single Pan bands.
If that is done, then we can truly say the steelband is recognised in this twin-island republic of ours.
