Young and moving on

Bombarded by a torrent of toxic and negative news in media about the current state and future of our nation, we citizens need to take some time out, take a deep breath and recognise and applaud the positives so many of our nation’s youth have been achieving.  Young nationals continue to achieve great things on the global stage; achievements which go unnoticed by most and in which we must be very proud and applaud.  The young musicians of Exocubs Steel Orchestra (youth arm of Republic Bank Exodus) recently returned home after winning standing ovations and critical acclaim for their performances in Argentina.

Their counterparts of Valley Harps Steel Orchestra of Petit Valley are currently winding down a concert tour of France.The St Margaret’s Youth Steel Orchestra also continues to fly the cultural flag of T&T very high as they show us and the world the great invention that is the steelpan. They will be staging their Ninth Annual Youth Steelband Extravaganza tomorrow at the Queen’s Park Savannah, Port-of-Spain, starting at 2 pm.

The orchestra’s Musical/Events co-ordinator, Rosemarie Abraham, said this week: “In our continued quest to develop our youths holistically through the medium of the steelpan, we of the St Margaret’s Youth Steel Orchestra have embarked on a pan programme which has been quite successful.  “In addition to our orchestra, which recently performed successfully at Carnegie Hall and Universal Studios, Orlando, there will also be performances by BP Renegades Youth Steel Orchestra (non-school National Panorama champion); Success Stars Pan Sounds; MHTL Starlift Juniors and Massy Trinidad All Stars Youth Steel Orchestra.”
