Junior Monarch 13-18 semi-finalists chosen
THE SEMI-FINALISTS have been chosen for the 13-18 category of the 2015 Scotiabank Junior Calypso Monarch competition which is being staged in association with IGM Stage Lighting.
Thirty-six participants were judged in the second preliminary round last night at the Queen’s Park Steel Shed and 12 of them plus one reserve will face the judges on July 4 at the Lester Vaughn School.
Eight of that group (plus one reserve) will go on to 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.
