Republic Bank Mashramani Panorama Steel Pan Competition 2015 Two Days Of Talent And Entertainment

× 6

The Republic Bank sponsored Mashramani Steel Band Competition 2015 saw this year’s competition being hosted in two parts – Jazz Ensembles, Duets and Soloists on one evening and School Bands and Large Bands on the final evening.

On Thursday, February 05, 2015 at the Theatre Guild Playhouse, participants of the following minor categories competed:

  • Junior Solo
  • Senior Solo
  • Pan Duet
  • Pan Jazz

Meanwhile, on Sunday, February 08, 2015, the competition for School Bands and Large Bands followed at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall.

Republic Bank is very pleased at the growth of this competition, which has seen an increase in the Schools’ participation, necessitating the move from a single to a two day activity.

In large part, this growth trend is the fruit of the Republic RightStart Pan Minors Music Literacy Programme which targets school aged children across Guyana.

This is the seventh consecutive year that the Bank has sponsored this event.
