Semi Finals Results for Small Steel Orchestras - Trinidad & Tobago National Steelband Panorama 2017
Update: Full RESULTS Summary
Trinidad & Tobago, W.I. - The final night line-up in the Small steel orchestra category is set for the 2017 Panorama season. With a tie (one among several), between Old Tech and Uptown Fascinators steel orchestras for fourteenth position, the number of finalists increases to fifteen instead of fourteen. The musical battle for the championship in this category is now ten days away - Thursday 23 February - and plays out at the Skinner Park venue in South Trinidad.
The small steel orchestras will have the night all to themselves, as a break in tradition occurred. The Single Pan Bands have customarily joined the small steel orchestras for Final night, however for the 2017 season, the former have instead already completed their championship competition.
From an original field of forty-five competitors, the final fifteen small steel orchestras bested fifteen other bands from the thirty semi-finalists who were part of the “Savannah Party” which unfolded at the Queen’s Park Savannah in Port-of-Spain, north Trinidad, on February 12. The defending champions, Arima Golden Symphony, will no doubt try to make up much ground as they are now currently in tie for tenth place, being awarded 267 points. They will have to trounce all who scored more points than they, including the current top three - La Horquetta Pan Groove, Our Boys and Fascinators Pan Symphony, respectively.
Following are the full results for the thirty Small Steel Orchestra semi-finalists.
