World's Best Steel Pan Orchestra Performs Today at Scotiabank Plaza Toronto

Trinidad & Tobago's SILVER STARS STEEL ORCHESTRA at Scotia Plaza
62 years of performing brings the LEGENDARY pan orchestra to Toronto

WHAT: Trinidad and Tobago's World renowned Silver Stars Steel Orchestra members will perform live at Scotia Plaza on Tuesday, July 27th at noon in celebration of their 62 years of success, joining the Scotiabank Caribana festivities. The Steel Band will perform in front of Scotia Plaza’s Adelaide Street Entrance.

While visiting Scotia Plaza to hear the sound of the Silver Stars, be sure to head down to the concourse level for an up-close look at last year’s costume winner of the Queen of the Bands competition. “The Source” is part of the Carnival Nationz presentation, “In Full Bloom – Fruits & Flowers” and depicts the sun in all its glory. Designed and built by Kenny Coombs, “The Source” is approximately 20’ high, 35’ wide and 18’ deep.

WHERE: Scotia Plaza, Adelaide Street entrance
40 King Street West, Toronto
(In the event of rain, please visit the concourse level at Scotia Plaza)

WHEN: Tuesday July 27, 2010
12 noon - 1 p.m.

WHY: Newtown based Silver Stars Steel Orchestra most recently took home the championship for the second year in a row at Carnival, claiming top title and prize at National Panorama in Queen's Park Savannah in Port-of-Spain. Playing more of a Trinidad and Tobago Creole style of music, the Band is here in Toronto to perform in support of Scotiabank Caribana, and is the only Steel Band to hold a Band of the Year title in Mas competition.
