Over the past three years, it is the only steel ensemble to have been seen on the national & regional news both BBC & ITV during Notting Hill Carnival.The Orchestra in performance is as sophisticated as it is exuberant, playing classical music and opera as well as Popular, Reggae and Soca music, so it is not surprising that it gains a lot of media attention. But part of the reason for the Orchestras high media profile is that it is also media smart: always able to meet deadlines, it enjoys lasting relationships with journalists and producers in local, national and international press, online publications, radio and television.
