Preliminary Results of Small Conventional Steel Orchestras - Trinidad & Tobago Panorama 2016

Trinidad & Tobago, W.I. -  Tornadoes Steel Orchestra is one of four bands representing the South/Central region in the small steel orchestra category which made it through to the semi-finals being staged January 24th in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad.  Playing arranger's Shervon Edwards' arrangement of "Mash It Up," not only did the band make the cut, but it also trumped nineteen others at this stage.  But hot on the heels of Tornadoes' heels is the defending champion Arima Golden Symphony musically led by champion arranger Terrance "BJ" Marcelle.

Out of the fifty-one small bands which eventually competed in the four respective regions, less than half - twenty in all - will play on with hopes of final night glory.  The "gates" closed behind band number twenty, Tobago region's Crown Cordaans, shutting out the other thirty-one hopefuls.

The draw for playing positions is up Wednesday 20th January.  The twenty bands appear on a combined semi-final competition card showcasing steel orchestras in the small, medium and large categories, beginning 9:00 a.m. at the Queen's Park Savannah venue.


Following are the full results for the preliminary competition for small conventional steel orchestras.
