2017 is Renegade Emmanuel’s year


T&T - Emmanuel Joseph is having a great year. The captain of the Renegades Youth Steel Orchestra helped lead the band to success in this year’s 2017 Junior Panorama Championships. He was successful in his CSEC exams this year and after five excellent years at Hillview College, he is now a sixth form student of St Mary’s College. As if those weren’t reasons enough to make 2017 stellar for young Emmanuel, on September 22, he officially becomes a star. Emmanuel is the voice of the future in the To be a Renegade documentary that will debut at the T&T Film Festival later this month. “Words cannot describe the emotion and pride we feel,” he says describing his fellow pannists. “This is not a band, the Renegades is a family.”
