Results - Small Conventional Steel Orchestra Preliminaries - Trinidad & Tobago National Panorama 2024

Trinidad & Tobago, W.I. - The preliminaries in the Small steel orchestra category of the 2024 Trinidad & Tobago National Panorama are now complete. Beginning December 7 and ending December 17,  the steel orchestras from four regions–Tobago, North, East and South/Central–all performed in respective panyards and communities, in efforts to make it to the semi-final round. The score sheets were then opened by event organizer Pan Trinbago via their Facebook Live page on December 18.

Thirty bands move on to the next phase of competition on January 6, 2024, the date set for the semi-finals.  Uptown Fascinators have been the winners of the competition in the past two seasons; they are looking to hold on to that title, with arranger Ojay Richards. They will have some ground to make up, being currently tied for eleventh with Highlanders Steel  Orchestra. The semi-final phase opposite Victoria Square, Park Street, presents a fairly level performance field, for the bands. Panyard judging - while beneficial to the respective communities, is, in the opinion of some in the steelband community, ‘uneven.’ In this format, preliminaries are held over multiple nights and at individual venues, with ‘results’ not always being well received. New East Side Dimension from Tobago led by arranger Kersh Ramsey is in the lead at this point.

Tokyo Steel Orchestra, which has been through some challenging times, this year has the team of Carlton “Zanda” Alexander and Andre Robley as part of the steelband music arsenal in their community. They move on to the semi-finals for the 2024 season.

For the record, four bands—B-Minor, Five Rivers Modern Symphony, Sound of Music and Todd’s Road Rhythem Raiders steel orchestras—were listed for preliminary panyard judging in the original data circulated by Pan Trinbago, but did not appear on the sheet of preliminary results.

Following are the full results for the preliminary phase of 2024 competition for Small conventional steel orchestras.
