Trinidad & Tobago, W.I. - The thirty-one steel orchestras which were in the semi-finals gave their best musical efforts on the afternoon of Saturday January 11 at Victoria Square in Port-of-Spain. Now, the top fourteen (14) are moving on to the finals, slated for January 17, 2020. Genesis Pan Groove, Uptown Fascinators and the 2019 defending champs T&T Defence Force are currently out front as they, along with eleven co-competitors, each remain intent on claiming the 2020 crown in the small conventional steel orchestra category this year.
In the ears, eyes, and opinions of judges Ezra Joseph, Joanna Shortt, Kenrick Noel, Vorbin Cordice, Richard Pierre and Roger Sardinah - the arrangements of Arddin Herbert, Ojay Richards and Duvone Stewart, and subsequent execution by Genesis Pan Groove, Uptown Fascinators and T&T Defence Force, respectively, are best in show at this point.
Together with Uptown Fascinators - New East Side Dimension, West Side Symphony, Tobago Pan-Thers and Crown Cordaans represent Tobago’s opportunities to take the title back to the Trinidad’s sister isle.
