St. Vincent & the Grenadines 2013 Panorama Results - Five back-to-back Championships for Sion Hill Euphonium Steel Orchestra
Kingstown, St. Vincent & the Grenadines - Five in a row! Holding fast to the National Steelband Panorama title are 2013 champions Sion Hill Euphonium Steel Orchestra, with arranger Seion Gomez. Runners-up and main challengers Starlift Steel Orchestra were again disappointed after the results were announced at 1:30 a.m. earlier today at Victoria Park. South East Steel Orchestra who were not in the top three in 2012 snagged third place in the musical battle.
Many weeks of diligent music practice for hundreds of steelpan musicians culminated in the 2013 National Panorama competition in Saint Vincent & the Grenadines on July 5th, which, incidentally was also the date for the 2012 event. Billed as “Steel and Glitter,” a combination of the steelband panorama and mas band showcase for Carnival, the Panorama component fielding seven steel orchestras got off to a late start, with Symphonix Steel Orchestra the first band opening up at 8:55 p.m. at the Victoria Park venue in the country’s capital of Kingstown.
