Preliminary Results for Large Conventional Steel Orchestras - Trinidad & Tobago Panorama 2017

Update:  Full RESULTS Summary

Trinidad & Tobago, W.I. - Defending champs Desperadoes Steel Orchestra topped the preliminary round of the National Panorama competition.

The band playing the Carlton “Zanda” Alexander-arrangement of “Good Morning” accumulated 277 points, two (2) points more than the second-placed Trinidad All Stars (275) for their rendition of Ultimate Rejects’ featuring MX Prime’s “Full Extreme.” Exodus Steel Orchestra came in third place with 274 points for its performance of Pelham Goddard’s/Terrance “BJ” Marcelle’s arrangement of “Good Morning.”

As in the medium category, the same number of bands—fourteen—moves on to the semi-finals.  Fifteen orchestras competed in the large group, with one - Genesis Pan Groove - not making that cut. The orchestra moved up to “large” for 2017, having competed in the medium arena in 2016 and 2015, and participating as a small steel orchestra in 2014.

Score sheets of the Medium and Large steel orchestras were opened in the presence of the bands’ representatives at Pan Trinbago’s Conference Room on Park Street, Port of Spain, on the morning of Monday February 6.

The draw for semi-finals playing positions in the two categories will be conducted at CTV (the television arm of the state-run Caribbean New Media Group (CNMG)) tomorrow Tuesday, February 7 - at 7:30 a.m.
