Symons was invited to perform as a guest Steel Pan Soloist at the Edinburgh Military Tattoo 2003, Edinburgh Castle, Edinburgh, Scotland along with The Bermuda Regiment Band and The Bermuda Gombey Dancers. This event included many acts from around the world and was televised by BBC TV to an audience of 1.7 million world wide in Edinburgh, United Kingdom.

From his youth as a guitarist to the start of his music career as a bass guitarist and to his current role as an international steel pan soloist and recording artist, he is one of those amazing individuals that deserves to be celebrated for his life path and his artistry. He is a self-taught musician, which makes his growth and transitions throughout his life that much more implausible.
