Small, Medium & Large Steel Orchestras - Finals: Order of Appearance - Trinidad & Tobago Panorama 2011
Global - This year eleven bands instead of ten, in the small steel orchestra category, moved on to the Panorama Finals because of two “tied” positions coming out of the semi-finals. These bands join the sixteen Single Pan Bands in their Final night competition on Thursday February 3 in Arima, Trinidad.
And on Carnival Saturday night, it’s the turn of the Medium and Large Steel orchestras as they take the stage at the Queen’s Park Savannah. Arranger for Trinidad All Stars, Leon “Smooth” Edwards, pictured at right in dark red, pulled number one at the official draw for playing positions of the Large bands. Pan Elders will start things off in the Medium category.
complete Order of Appearance
The only item that is official at this time is that there is a Panorama on Saturday 5 Februay which is scheduled to start at 7:00 p.m. Trinidad time (6:00 p.m. New York time).
Usually a couple and sometimes a few radio stations carry the feed live. There is no way to know which will carry the broadcast in its entirety. There has been no official word on a video broadcast, either free of charge, or a Pay-Per-View option.
Keep checking When Steel Talks where updates on this will be posted - if and when available.
Desperadoes is playing in the large bands category, after the medium bands, so expect Despers on stage anytime after 10:00 p.m. Trinidad time. They play at positon number 5.
