TT – Naparima Combined Steel Orchestra is ready to successfully defend its 2019 School’s Junior Panorama title.
The students from Naparima Girls’ High School and Naparima College played their hearts out for the judges at Tuesday’s preliminary round at the CAL Skiffle Pan Theatre, Coffee Street, San Fernando.
Present to cheer them on was former culture minister Joan Yuille-Williams – a former Naps Girl herself, along with principals of both schools – Carolyn Bally-Gosine and Dr Michael Dowlat.
“It’s a pleasure to be here to support my alma mater. I was here last year and I am back again and I will be in the Savannah on January 26 for the finals cheering them on.”
Although the finalists have not yet been selected, the former minister is confident the players will be among the top ten.
“I think they did extremely well,” she said after hearing their performance of Shaquille Vincent and Desiree Seecharan’s arrangement of Aaron Duncan’s Back to Basics.
