Pan in De Countryside heads to Grande Riviere
Grande Riviere has been chosen as the place to launch the 2014 series of Pan in De Countryside. The Pan Trinbago initiative to take the steelbands to far-flung areas of T&T continues, as the steelpan body showcases the national music instrument. The first in the series takes place in the rural village on the north coast at the Grande Riviere Recreation Ground, Toco, on March 29, from 3 pm.
A number of steel orchestras, including Super Novas, this year’s Panorama Small Band winner; Carib Woodbrook Playboyz, Sangre Grande Cordettes, Pan Steronettes, Southern Marines Steelband Foundation and City Sun Valley, will be the featured performers, according to a release from Pan Trinbago. Steelpan memorabilia, food and drink will be on sale on location. Grande Rivierie is known for its bird-watching opportunities and it is also a primary nesting ground for large numbers of leatherback turtles.
Pan Trinbago invites pan music lovers to the programme of concerts, as well as to enjoy the local fare put on by the villagers. Pan Trinbago will be providing a shuttle service/excursion with a limited number of seats at $200 per person. Transportation will depart Pan Trinbago Head Office, Park Street, Port-of-Spain at 8 am. For further information, call 623-4486 or 625-3556.
