Perfect Pitch competition

Perfect Pitch is a new steelpan competition that involves traditional steelpan instruments and non-traditional instruments.

The aim of the competition is to showcase the combination of the steelpan with a non-traditional instrument, while giving the entrants the opportunity to express themselves creatively through music and performance.

The format:

Entrants must perform as a duet and play a combination of the steelpan and any other instrument from the modern symphony orchestra, keyboards or the guitar family.

Entrants must be between the ages of 10 and 25.

Each duet must play two pieces (a maximum of four minutes each)

  • The first piece - a test piece
  • The second piece - a tune of choice

Prizes are to be confirmed.

The first competition will take place on 30 November 2014 at the YAA Asantewaa Carnival Arts Centre, 1 Chippenham Mews, London.

The competition will be hosted by the Carnival Carousel Carnival Company and is supported by Ebony Steelband Trust, Soca News, PanPodium and BAS.
