The community of Diamonds will become a bustling hive of activity on Saturday, October 11, as the Pan Against Crime Committee makes its mark in that rural district for the official launch of the New Dimensions Steel Orchestra.{{more}}

Residents of Diamonds and surrounding areas can expect an evening of fun and entertainment at the Erlene Horne Square, Diamonds, starting at 4:30 p.m. Melodious pan music will be rendered by New Dimensions, along with the South Rivers Pan Side.

The Government of St Vincent and the Grenadines has taken a unique approach to fighting crime, by helping young people in the country turn toward a life of music by learning how to play the steel pan.

The programme, the brainchild of Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves, is implemented in several schools and community organizations across the country.
