Trinidad - Two new Panorama champions have emerged after last evening’s Small and Medium Band Finals at the Queen’s Park Savannah in Port of Spain.

Arima Golden Symphony registered the first win of the season with their arrangement of Winston Scarborough’s “A Blue Crescendo.”  The band from the east secured 439 points to take home the first prize of $400,000 and the bp Challenge Trophy, plus replica.  Interestingly, the top four positions in the Small Band category went to bands playing De Fosto’s “A Blue Crescendo.” 

CLICO Sforzata dethroned Courts Sound Specialists of Laventille in the Medium Band category winning $600,000.  Under the baton of Yohan Popwell, the band’s scintillating arrangement of “Bandoleros” placed them ahead of the rest with 473 points.  With a difference of two points, NLCB Buccooneers of Tobago came in second with Seion Gomez’s arrangement of “Dangerous.”

Overall, eight bands each in two categories were judged by separate adjudication panels for cash prizes totaling $5,250,000.  Click below for the official results from Wednesday’s competition.
