Trinidad & Tobago - The Trinidad & Tobago Defence Force Steel Orchestra has been invited to participate in the Holland Voorthuizen Military Tattoo from May 4–15, 2010.

Nine hundred performers from Canada, England, Scotland, U.S.A., Poland, Oman, France and the Netherlands are expected to take part in this, the eighth edition of the tattoo.

The Trinidad & Tobago Defence Force Steel Orchestra - the “world’s only military marching steel orchestra” is among sixteen (16) participating bands. These include The Regimental Band of the Lincoln & Welland Regiment (Canada), The Band of HM Royal Marines Scotland, The Pipes & Drums of the Royal Artillery, Musique des Equipages de la Flotte (France), The Representative Orchestra of the Pomeranian Military District (Poland) and Fanfare Korps Nationale Reserve (Netherlands).

The performances promise to be bigger and better than ever before. “Not one, but three days in a row, Voorthuizen will be one to watch for tattoo lovers all over the world.”

Five performances will be held on the 6th, 7th and 8th of May.  “Tribute to the Veterans” is the theme. This tattoo is aimed at honoring the veterans one final time in a way they will never forget and is part of the national program for war veterans.

It is anticipated that thousands of veterans and a minimum of five thousand Canadian students will be coming to the Voorthuizen to watch the Military Tattoo.
