|Pantonic All Stars Orchestra (19 Aug 2022)|
“Pantonic All Stars” Steel Orchestra is a Stockport based group of talented young people, dedicated to playing steel music. They were established in 1985 and now usually comprise up to 25 players aged between 11 and 25. The group has gained recognition as one of the Country’s leading youth Steel Orchestras, having been presented with the Outstanding Performance Award twice in the National ‘Music for Youth’ Festival and performed at many School Proms concerts including St. David’s Hall, Cardiff, and the Royal Albert Hall, London, where they have been fortunate enough to make four appearances since 1989. They have also been featured several times on radio and television in arts festival and youth programmes including Blue Peter (twice!) and the ‘Young Entertainer of the Year’ semi-finals on BBC1.
Steel pan music originated in the Caribbean in the 1940s and was brought over to the United Kingdom, and many places in Europe during the following years. Steel pans are all made from oil drums, which are then shaped for the notes and chromed to preserve their quality and give the sunshine sound of steel music. All our pans were made in this country by West Indian pan makers and our tutors were from the Caribbean for the first twenty years which has brought the traditional sound and style to our music.
The Orchestra has performed in Europe on many occasions, most recently in Belgium in 2017, tours Devon every three or four years, and regularly appears at Caribbean evenings, shows, carnivals and shopping centres throughout the Country. The Orchestra operates in the name of our home town of Stockport and all public appearances operate behind a banner proclaiming Pantonic All Stars Steel Orchestra – the “Sound of Stockport Steel” with our vehicles sporting the same logo on their sides.
