The annual Pan In The Plaza Steelpan Camp is gearing up for tomorrow’s Youth Pan Extravaganza at the Cathedral Plaza, Spry Street, The City, at 4 p.m.When the WEEKEND NATION visited the Queen’s Park Steel Shed, young bubbly “pan lovers” were diligently practising Bon Jovi’s hit I’ll Be There For You, under the guidance of the Association of Steelpan Teachers and former “campers”.Camp director and veteran steelpan player Kently Gill said the three-week camp which ends today was hosted by the National Cultural Foundation and the Central Bank Of Barbados “to support a cultural initiative as part of their outreach programme”.“Over the years, it has been very good. The children have been enthusiastic as they always are . . . . The bank insists that we run it and follow the guidelines that any other camps would have to follow.”
