Music for Youth 2007
Players Relaxing

Music for Youth invited Pantonic All Stars Steel Orchestra to Birmingham to perform at the 37th National Festival of Music for Youth on Thursday 12th July. The lunch time was spent playing a twenty minute set on a beach built in Chamberlain Square and this was followed by our ten minute performance in the Traditional and International section of the Festival.

Our Musical Director for this event was Steven Marshall, who started as a junior player with the Orchestra back in 1987 and took over in this role a couple of years ago. To his credit he arranged both the striking pieces that the group played to an exceptionally high standard in Birmingham.

The first piece was the stirring 'Africa' by Toto and this was followed with a link straight into 'Pan in A Minor', a traditional piece written specifically for steel pan. Unfortunately this wasn't what the judges were looking for from a steel orchestra and we weren't successful in getting any awards. However the Orchestra has been invited to open the Primary Proms at Chester Cathedral in October, so we are doing something right
