UK National Panorama 2015 – ‘Champions of Steel’ Panyard Round Up – Croydon Steel Orchestra

 Croydon Steel Orchestra is a youth and community steel band based in the London borough of Croydon, which was set up in 2000.  The Orchestra aims to promote “pan” as a style of music and the steel band as a family of instruments in their own right as well as to promote the tuition of steel band in schools, enabling as many children as possible the opportunity to learn the art of pan.

CSO has been competing in the UK Panorama competition for at least eleven years and their founder, Paul Dowie, has certainly created a musical platform for the young people of Croydon and surrounding boroughs to attend, learn, experiment, explore and perform musical renditions in various genres at numerous venues.

CSO musical director is Paul Dowie.  Their Joint managers are Leanne Finch-Tanner and Sue with Peter Holman and Jody Humphries as their joint captains. Vice-Captain is Adam Parke.

For the 2015 UK National Steelband Panorama, ‘Champions of Steel’ competition their tune of choice is ’Like ah Boss’ by Machel Montano.  David Ijaduola  is the musical arranger and has competed in this competition many times but this is his initial attempt at being a musical arranger in the iconic competition. David has the knack to motivate this band of youthful, talented and energetic players to achieve their best results .
