Trinidad & Tobago Steelband Panorama
Global - Success Stars Pan Sounds, St. Francois Girls’ Steel Orchestra and St. Margaret’s Boys all repeated as Trinidad & Tobago Junior National Panorama champions in the Non-school, Secondary school and Primary school categories, respectively, retaining titles won in 2012. These three bands bested their fellow competitors following more than ten hours of steelpan music in a roster which featured at least three dozen steel orchestras.
Continuing in their tradition of going to competition performing an original composition was a formula that worked once again for Success Stars – captained by Louis Rogers – out of Laventille when they clinched the Non-schools title playing “Something to Celebrate.” The tune turned out ‘gold’ for the orchestra, giving them three consecutive titles; they did have ‘something to celebrate’ - the championship at the end of the musical contest. The song was written, sung and arranged by the band’s resident and much-loved arranger, Mickiel Gabriel.
