Sonatas Launch Brings Out the Best

Steel Sensation Steals the Show

Sonatas Steel Orchestra on stage at their 2007 launch

New York - This past weekend New York's Sonatas Steel Orchestra held its annual steelband launch at KC Hideaway in Brooklyn.  Sonatas' launch is traditionally a great place to hear New York steelband music at it's best on a Summer evening.  This year's event did not disappoint.  With many pan notables in attendance, the participating orchestras delivered varied and entertaining sets that covered a wide range of musical genres.

Arrangers Amrit Samaroo, Robert Greenidge and Yohan Popwell at Sonatas Launch

Present at this year's event were New York Marsicans, D'Radoes, Harmony, Sesame Flyers, Steel Sensation and the host Sonatas Steel Orchestra.  Sonatas took the stage at 7:30 pm and reinforced their position as one of the finest steel orchestras in the United States.  Under the musical direction of arranger Yohan Popwell - Sonatas dazzled the audience with their mixed repertoire that included David Rudder's The Ganges and Nile, Grover Washington's Just the Two of Us and Mister Magic.

Steel Sensation

Each group was afforded time to perform four pieces in the initial round.  Sonatas' management kept the show flowing and organized, as there were virtually no breaks once the first band began its session.  The bands took advantage of this arrangement, performing with a vigor because of the short sets.  All the bands delivered superior entertainment.  Of particular note was Steel Sensation who for all intents and purposes stole the show with their far-reaching repertoire and highly skilled performance.  They received a rousing ovation.  Steel Sensation is under the musical directorship of Amrit Samaroo, and again showed that in this setting, great musicianship was paramount and size was immaterial.
