Panatics Steelband Network organization is celebrating its 20th Anniversary this year and as always is proud to be part of the Pan Alive experience once again. Since the inception of the organization, it has strived on the belief that the promotion of the Steelpan culture is of utmost importance. It has done so throughout the years by hosting Steelpan classes, workshops and camps as well as participating in performances put on by the Pan Arts Network and collaborating with groups such as La petite Musicale to produce shows and CDs. Panatics can be seen performing for the Oshawa Fiesta Parade (Father’s Day Weekend) as well as at other cultural events such as the Las’ Lap Lime in Woodbridge. This year, Panatics will be seen at the Harbourfront as well. Panatics is always available to join efforts with its fellow organizations to push forward in the overall goal of promoting the Steelpan across all frontiers. Panatics will continue to do so hopefully for another 20 years!!
Panatics can be found at the Church of Nativity in Scarborough throughout the year and for the 2011 summer season at 60 Barbados Blvd., Unit 8.
