More Steel Bands Will Move On To The Panorama Finals

"Pan Trinbago has announced an increase in the number of bands qualifying for the National Panorama Finals 2010.
As a result, there will be ten finalists in each of the three categories-Small (single pan), Medium and Large Conventional Bands. This is a change from previous years, in which there were eight bands each competing in the Conventional category finals of medium and large.
It is understood the change was agreed to as a result of a meeting between Prime Minister Patrick Manning and the new executive committee of Pan Trinbago on Tuesday.
According to Pan Trinbago president Keith Diaz, ’We approached the Prime Minister for financial assistance to improve the number of finalists in the three categories and he agreed. This is truly a good signal coming from the Prime Minister.’
Diaz also said Pan Trinbago has approached corporate Trinidad and Tobago and the response has been slow, but some are contributing."
