National Secondary Schools Panorama Champion 2024 | Holy Faith Convent Penal

Congratulations are extended to the winning steelband for the 2024 National Junior Panorama competition, Holy Faith Convent Penal. This was an amazing feat considering that, as stated by the arranger, 27 of the 33 girls who played today were first-time steelpan players. The school does not have any steelpans and had to use Panasonic Connection steel orchestra pans. Now that is something to celebrate!

Holy Faith Convent placed second in the semi-final round of competition; they improved their score by 14 points today to win it all. The arranger said that they chose Savannah Grass because Kes revived the song with an improved version. That new version of Savannah Grass sold for the arranger, who initially planned to play Destra's "First Time." "First Time" simply because it was the first time playing the steelpan for most of the girls. Choosing "Savannah Grass" turned out to be the right decision. The judges agreed and awarded the band 261 points.

The Results were as follows:
01. Holy Faith Convent Penal - Savannah Grass - 275 Points
02. QRC Providence - 273 (tie for second place)
02. Naparima Combine - Call My Name - 273 (tie for second place)
04. Bishop East & Trinity 
05. South East Port-of-Spain
06. San Juan North Secondary
07. St. Joseph's Convent
08. Holy Cross College
09. St. Francois Girls
10. Bishop Anstey High School
