 2013 Junior National Panorama Results 
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.

Many, heartfelt THANKS to all the players for such wonderful perfomances.   I was so happy to be able to hear these performances and see some of the action, too; thanks to all involved in helping those of us, not in Trinidad at the moment, to be able to enjoy these performances. Being a former teacher, I am very proud of all the student players, their teachers and parents for supporting them.  Congratulations also to the non-school category players, teachers/leaders, and parents !  What fantastic community spirit.  THANKS AGAIN TO ALL.
