Having “laid its cornerstone on May 13, 1890 and opened its doors May 5, 1891…the world’s most famous concert hall,” Carnegie Hall in midtown Manhattan, New York, USA, will be stirred on June 17 from 8 pm with the scintillating sounds of the St Margaret’s Boys’ Steel Orchestra’s stage-side comprising 33 under 21-year-old pan musicians.
In what can be termed another history-making occasion for T&T’s pan world, but more impressively, the youth arm, the steel orchestra’s performance will be T&T’s second in this “beautiful venue where the world’s most gifted musicians come to perform,” after Desperadoes’ in 1987.
