Nubia Willi­ams...music educator and steelband adjudicator.

Pan Trinbago Inc TC has embarked on two workshops, with the aim of improving the adjudication process at the Panorama competitions and to produce a cadre of professionally trained judges.

The first in the series is a workshop earmarked for arrangers. The forum was conducted by Nubia Willi­ams last Tuesday, at the Laventille Community Complex, Eastern Main Road, Laventille, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Arrangers were invited to share their views on the adjudication process, in a bid “to improve the judging criteria for implementation at the 2020 Panorama competitions”.
