Trinidad & Tobago, W.I. - “Magnificent is the only word I can find to describe Constellations II, staged by Massy Trinidad All Stars at Queen’s Hall, last Saturday. A follow up to Constellations I, staged by the Duke Street street orchestra at Church of Our Lady of the Rosary last month, this edition featured a programme of mixed performances showcasing voice, pan and other conventional instruments.
“Doing a wonderful job as show host by maintaining a seamless programme, Gerelle Forbes gave the packed venue snippets of All Stars’ illustrious history dating back to the band’s previous metamorphosis during an 80-year span.
“All Stars opened the evening in a dramatic fanfare performing Strauss’ Sunrise Fanfare (Thus Spoke Zarathustra), conducted by Deryck Nurse.
Good going ALL STARS. So Sorry I missed this one.-----WEB.
Excellent! I sent my spirit there, very sorry to have missed this.
Thanks for posting this report - would have loved to see this Massy Trinidad All Stars concert - this must have been a giant night. Question: Was there a video recording made of this concert and could it be made available to us? I think this would be really inspirational for all the music students and pan players of our network down under. Thanks for your help with this. regards Rita
