The Sion Hill Euphonium Steel Orchestra was formally established in 1981. The executive of the Sion Hill Euphonium Steel Orchestra has answered the bellowing call, and has commissioned a training programme for adults who are interested in learning about the steel pan.
Beginning last Monday at the orchestra’s base in Sion Hill Village, close to 20 adults enrolled in the training programme.
cedel webb-allen Said that after the training programme, she will be competent enough to represent the band in the 2019 senior panorama competition, alongside her daughter. Buoyed by the response to the adult training programme, Chair of the Sion Hill Euphonium Warren Knights said it augurs well for the image of the organisation.
“It shows that persons young and old want to be associated with the Sion Hill Euphonium… It is a case of good association,” Knights reflected.
Knights also holds the view that with the Sion Hill Euphonium being one of the top steel bands in St Vincent and the Grenadines, it adds to the gravitation.
He linked the winning of this year’s senior panorama title, as helping to attract persons wanting to be part of the band.
Knights is hopeful that the adult training would, like the junior training programme which has been continuous since 1995, become an annual affair.
