Exodus Steel Orchestra
2005 T&T Panorama Season
Reigning National Steelband Panorama champions Exodus Steel Orchestra, looks forward to repeating their championship ways for the third consecutive year in this 2005 Panorama season. Ace arranger Pelham Goddard gives a candid inside look into the season from his perspective in an exclusive interview with When Steel Talks .
The band's tune of choice - De Fosto's "From Beyond" - is completed, and the band is already over the 120-player limit, according to Goddard. Exodus is looking forward to defending its championship. Indeed, Mr. Goddard is quite pleased with the way things are shaping up from the Exodus perspective. However, there is much in this season's goings-on that Mr. Goddard views as "notes that are in the wrong key." He is totally against the new rule changes which allow selections from past years into the 2005 competition.
Goddard is also against what he see as "last-minute rule changes" received from the governing body and organizers of the 2005 Panorama competition, Pan Trinbago, on Friday January 7. He views these as counterproductive and as impediments to bands such as his own, Exodus Steel Orchestra. The arranger, like his colleague Edwin Pouchet who was victorious in the medium-band category in the 2005 finals, is however confident and emboldened by the enthusiasm and dedication of his musicians as they go after a hat trick for 2005.
