Classorama the school steelpan competition goes from strength to strength


982

Classorama is an annual school steelband competition, now in its fourth year. As one of the organisers, the Steel Pan Trust boldly brought it to a field in High Wycombe, hired a big top circus tent and some fun rides for the pupils, and challenged themselves to create a festival atmosphere. And what a success it was, with 13 schools participating.

They appreciated the outdoor location, the event having taken place in a large theatre in Kilburn for the past two years. The secondary school champion was Kingsdale Foundation School for a third time, with their pan tutor Marlon Hibbert, also manager of Endurance Steel Orchestra
