Impressive performances! Scotiabank Jr Calypso Monarch semifinalists, 13-18
In a word – IMPRESSIVE! That was the general consensus on the performances from the 36 Junior Calypso Monarch participants in the 13-18 category on Sunday 17th May 2015. The 13-18 entrants were being judged in the second preliminary round of the Scotiabank Junior Calypso Monarch in association with IGM Stage Lighting which took place at the Queen’s Park Steel Shed.
Like the 8-12’s who faced the judges the day before, they were also vying for a place in the semi-final round, scheduled for Saturday, July 4 at the Lester Vaughan School.
It must have been an enormously difficult task for the judges to decide on the eventual twelve semi-finalists and one reserve, eight of whom (again plus one reserve), will face defending champion Samantha ‘Sammy G‘ Greaves on the Final stage at the Garfield Sobers Gymnasium on Saturday, July 18.
As her fittingly titled song ‘Curtain Call‘ suggests, this will be Sammy’s final competition at the Junior Monarch level, but it is by no means the end of her Calypso journey, fans and supporters will continue to see this driven and determined lass on stage in the Pic-O-De-Crop competition.
The public will have a chance to decide on and root for their favourite junior semi-finalists and reserves in both categories at the two upcoming Scotiabank Junior Monarch Calypso Tents in association with IGM Stage Lighting on Saturday, June 13 at the Lester Vaughan School and on Sunday, June 21 at the Combermere School.
