The hidden stories of Carnival - From music schools in the community to the big stage, Panorama 2018

We see the shimmer of the costumes; a multitude of colours that engulf the streets of Port of Spain, San Fernando and at Regional Carnival celebrations, we hear the fierce and passionate lyrics of our musicians as they compete for coveted Monarch titles, we feel the energy of the steel drums whose sound beckons that invisible carnival spirit that lives in all of us.

But little is told about the dreams that come true for the world’s greatest eruption of euphoria. The journey of the Music Schools in the Community is one such hidden story.
