Junior Monarch semi-finalists named

The semi-finalists in this year’s Junior Monarch competition have been announced.

After a gruelling preliminary stage, 12 Junior calypsonians were chosen to go forward to the semi-finals, there being one reserve in each category.

Reigning 8-12 monarch Dynamo has now aged out of that category and will therefore be judged at the semi-final stage in the 13-18.

The semi-finals are slated for Saturday, July 2. However, before the semi-finalists reach that important stage, the Juniors will have the opportunity to hone their skills in two Junior Monarch calypso tents on June 11and 19 at the Lester Vaughan School and Combermere School, respectively. Both shows start at 6 p.m.
