Steelpan Is More Beautiful 2024

Pan Trinbago, the parent body for steelbands in Trinidad and Tobago and internationally, has embarked on the return of the well-loved Steelband Festival. This year’s competition will feature three (3) categories: Single Pan, Ensemble, and Orchestra. The Steelbands in each category will perform two (2) pieces: a test piece and a tune of choice. Pan Trinbago is dedicating this festival to Dr. David Michael Rudder, a well-accomplished and nationally-recognised calypsonian and musician. In doing so, the test pieces will feature three (3) of Dr. Rudder’s calypsos including “Engine Room” for Single Pan, “Oil and Music” for Ensemble, and “Dedication” for Orchestra. Pan Trinbago has enlisted PanNotation to create arrangements and scores for these selections, which will be used as test pieces. For the tune of choice category, steelbands will select a classical piece to perform for the adjudicators. Pan Trinbago will host the competition in July and August, 2024.

Steelband Test Pieces

A Test Piece is a manuscript or choice of music or song to be performed as intended by the composer or arranger. It will be played by all competing bands and will display a blend of uniformity, performance and musicianship. This year, our honorary Dr. David Rudder is the selected composer for the pieces used for each of the three (3) categories in this competition. The Single Pan category will perform Engine Room, Ensemble category will perform Oil and Music, whilst the Orchestra category performs Dedication. These pieces are all renditions sung by David Rudder, and for the purpose of this competition, test pieces were created by the esteemed and talented Michelle Huggins-Watts, Joshua Bedeau and Dr. Kendall Williams respectively.
