Friday, February 11, 2022 Pan Events - A Taste of Carnival 2022 Eighty three (83) steelbands have registered for Pan Trinbago’s events in the “A Taste of Carnival 2022”. The bands, 16 Large, 23 Medium, 23 Small and 27 Single Pan Bands will audition for places in the two events hosted by the pan body from this weekend. The first of these, “Pan in De Sancoche” is carded for Saturday February 19, with the second, “Musical Showdown in De Big Yard” on Saturday February 26. Both events will be staged the Queen’s Park Savannah, Port of Spain. Starting time is 4:00 pm and 5:00 pm respectively. “Pan in De Sancoche” is open to Single Pan and Small Conventional Bands. As the title suggests, the event itself will be a production of a little bit of this and a little bit of that featuring pan, traditional mas and old time calypsoes. Bands in this grouping will be required to perform “old time” calypsoes. Admission is $150. Grand Stand seating only. The other event which takes place on Carnival Saturday, February 26, will feature the “bigger guns in pan”, ie the Medium and Large Conventional Bands. Aptly named, “Musical Showdown in De Big Yard’, the selected bands will each perform two songs, a Panorama type arrangement and a Bomb tune, totalling not more than 15 minutes. Several prizes will be awarded including People’s Choice, Best Performing Band and Best Flag Waver. Patrons will have a choice seating accommodation ie Pods comprising six or nine persons in Carnival City (formerly North Stand area) and in the Grand Stand, Queen’s Park Savannah, Port of Spain. All venues are safe zones and are open to fully vaccinated patrons and artistes only. National Covid 19 protocols apply.
