Dear members,

It was such a gratifying event Sunday at our August CCC event as our members filled the divine mandir hall in support of our performers, thanks to each of you who made it. It was so nice to see some member families return from their trips/vacations to get the local updates from co-members at CCC, which is an additional benefit to attending the CCC eventsJ

We had TEN solo performances, largest in any CCC event history, with 9 vocals and one veena. We introduced three new voices, that of Sumanth, Deetshana and Smriti, which were all honey to our ears! Repeat performers Priyanka (Kalyani), Adithya (Panthuvarali), Twisha (Hindolam), Shashank(Lalitha), Ananya(Todi) and Shrikrishna(RTP) did a spectacular job and their musical progress was unmistakable. We were thrilled to host Hrishikesh after a long gap on the veena for accompaniment, and introduced budding vainika Vishrant, Keyboardist Sanika and mrudangist Srihari, who will join our pool this month as accompanists. Rest of our budding accompanists gave their best accompanying to the aksharam, in addition to coordinated costumes (which make the pictures look adorable as a team). Congratulations to every single one of our August performers!

Our sincere thanks toNamdevNayak(aka Nami) for giving our children the best ever audio experience even though he gets requests and SOS calls from other events for audio setup. Thanks to Anand Gurumurthy, Balaji Ramaswamy, Srivatsan Kannan and Murali Swaminathan for their help with stage/audio setup. To give a break to our regular photographers, I requested another member parent Ram Athreya to cover the event and he did a fantastic job with a quick turn-around in delivering the high resolution images, I am sure you are all going to lovethe pictures collection from our August event.Srikanth, Uma and Bhooma took care of the power point slides while Latha and Sadhana held the fort at the back with attendance. Anand worked hard the past couple of days to give you all aglimpse of the event in this short video clipand my sincere thanks to him for doing this extremely laborious editing task (3 hour long content in about 11 mins) for your viewing pleasure.Many thanks to our behind-the-scene-volunteers Radha (FB posts), Vaidy (Budding artist section on website) and Anandhi (home page update on website) for their help every month as well.

Please save Saturday September 9thfrom 4-7pm for our next event!Last, but not the least, Mohan and I would sincerely like to thank the teachers and the parents for the special ‘surprise’ segment with affectionate wedding anniversary wishes!

Best Regards,

Padma Mohan
