Virginia Celebrates Caribbean Heritage

Many movies and TV shows feature idealic beach scenes with steel pans playing in the back ground. Now you too can experience pan music by the sea-side, at the 11th Annual PANorama Caribbean Music Fest. Patrons can enjoy great Caribbean music and food while basking in the fresh ocean breezes of the breath-taking Virginia Beach Ocean front.

Starting on the Friday 10th May, Dr. Lennard Moses, Gary Gibson and Liam Teague will present sectional workshops, concurrently, followed by an engine room demonstration and mass steel band performance.

The Steel Band PANorama Competition will feature steel bands from across North America. Approximately 25 bands will perform in four categories for ratings and awards.

This year’s headline performance, by current and 3-time Brooklyn Panorama Champions, ADLIB, consists of pulsating and authentic Caribbean repertoire with arrangements by André White and a special guest performance by Liam Teague of North Illinois University.
