i would like to know when the government and the pantrinbago board, will start to use the national steel orchestra as an entity that is to be admired,to be supported(financially and socially),respected and as one that is imperative to the preservation and advancement of pan in the 21st century and beyond. i did not even know until the premiere of the "carnival messiah," that there was a national steel orchestra. ever since then i have been searching in vain to hear some mention of their name or of their participation in the many public events that have been unfolding.why are they not a dominant cultural icon? why are they not flying the colour of our national flag high? these days, all i am privileged to here is that bands like exodus and all stars (just as examples)are the ones playing in govrnment functions and so forth. when are we going to allow the national steel orchestra to do what they can do best-represnt our music locally and internationally.
