Coyaba New Dimensions Win Panorama
August 09, 2009 -- Coyaba New Dimensions last night ended a five-year drought when they won the 2009 Grenada National Panorama Championship at the National Stadium. Playing "Pan Fever", a song composed and arranged by David Peck Edwards, New Dimensions scored 268.5 points easily beating Food Fair/Suzuki Pan Wizards and Republic Bank Angel Harps into second and third places respectively. Only half a point seperated the second and third placed bands with Pan wizards scoring 259.5 points and Angel Harps 259.
For Coyaba New Dimensions who last won the Panorama Chamionship in 2003, it was their eighth Panorama Championship while for their arranger David Peck Edwards it was his tenth panorama victory as an arranger, having previously won with Carib City Newtones in 1986 and with Grenlec Rainbow City All Stars in 2000.
Panorama 2009 was keenly contested. Just as only half a point seperated the second and third bands, it was the same half of a point that seperated the next three bands which saw a tie for fourth place between LIME Commancheros and Rainbow City All Stars on 242 points with Digicel West Side Symphony coming sixth on 241.5 points.
In seventh position was Grand Roy Pan Angels on 238 points with Calabash Hotel Pan Lovers finishing in last position with 229 points.
