Simply PAN takes you to nature

Summer is here again and with it the Panfest season. This year Panoridim takes the fun outdoors!

Come immerse yourself in the unique, intimate, and tranquil slice of paradise, paired with the sweet sounds of pan at Boone Hall Oasis on Saturday July 2 & Sunday July 3. Experience the Passion, see the Art, and bask in the Nature of the true Oasis in the hills. Let the music and the lush surroundings give your body that well deserved treat away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The simplicity of pan awaits you.

And just when you thought this treat was only for Kingston, Panoridim takes the finale to Montego Bay! On Sunday, July 10, the luxurious lawns of the The Bellefield Great House & Gardens erupts in music as the north coast steels itself for the first time with a Panfest. You definitely do not want to miss it!

Pan Players receive UWI Awards for Culture

The University of the West Indies (UWI) encourages all-rounded students, and recognizes their contributions in extra curricular activities as well as academic performance at the UWI Student Awards. Two Panoridim players received awards at this year's Student Awards Ceremony held on April 9, 2011. Shanel Taylor (right), a linguistics major and one of Panoridim's Public Relations Officers, received one of the highest awards - Excellence in Culture - in recognition of her exemplary contributions not only within the band, but in the wider University community. Aisha Robinson (left), an economics major who joined Panoridim in September of 2010 received an award for Outstanding Performace in Culture for her impressive contribution within the band during her first year.

Congratulations players!

Lunch Hour Concert - March 2011

All societies of the Philip Sherlock Centre for the Creative Arts (PSCCA) on the UWI Mona Campus stage free lunch hour concerts during the school year for the benefit of the Campus Community. Panoridim uses this opportunity to showcase the student members of the band, both old and new. For the new members especially, the Lunch Hour Concert is their first major performance with the band. This year, with prizes and surprises facilitated through the Orchestra's Facebook page, many audience members were already in queue before the doors opened on March 31. The student band was larger than ever, with approximately 15 additional brand new players, who did an excellent job with their senior counterparts and fully entertained the packed theatre.
