SANGRE GRANDE CORDETTES

Cordettes-PIBXIISangre Grande Cordettes Steel Orchestra celebrated its fiftieth anniversary during 2012.

Fifty years ago a group of freelance pannist from the area, came together to establish themselves as a band.

Alwin Chow-lin-on (now deceased), a well known personality in the entertainment arena for many years, was appointed as its first Manager.

This accumulation of pan talent quickly mushroomed into an orchestra of immaculate sound and it was therefore no surprise that by the mid sixties, they entered the music festivals for the first time. Their performances were so well received that they soon became popularly Known in this arena as "the festival band".

This popularity allowed them to obtain their first sponsorship from KLM Royal Dutch Airways. They also became a resident entertainment fixture at the Trinidad Hilton in the seventies and eighties.

They entered their first Panorama in the mid seventies and although they have never captured the ultimate coveted title, they have made it to the grand finals on fifteen previous occasions and were East Zone champions in 1994. Special tribute must be paid to the astute guidance and musical directorship of Mr. Paul Campbell and Mr. Jit Samaroo and more recently, Mr Anders Kappel.

The band prides itself as community institution, and is honoured to be part of the inaugural program of the "Music School in the Panyard" initiative by the Ministry of Arts and Multiculturalism. The stage side continues to perform throughout the year and has been invited to various functions around the country receiving rave reviews for providing entertaining music with its wide repertoire which includes classical, Latin, Caribbean, pop, ballads and of course calypso and soca.
