TEN YEARS! We have completed TEN YEARS of monthly concerts with our recently concluded December event and we thank the Almighty for showering his grace on CCC and all our children! A big thanks to all those who took the time to join us at this event and a bigger thanks to all our performers who enabled us to finish the event on time by sticking to their assigned duration slots.
We had twelve solo performances, largest ever in CCC history with 11 on the vocals and one veena solo. We introduced 7 new voices, 1 new vainika, 2 new mrudangists in December CCC, making it the single largest virgin line up we have had in 10 years. One striking similarity I noticed was all the vocalists we introduced, Sadhana, Monisha, Oviya, Diya, Vishnu, Amruta & Vibha had gifted voices and gave us a lovely performance. Meera’s first veena performance was a delightful change in between the many vocal performances and Satvik and Lalit were quite impressive in their roles as intro mrudangists. Repeat performers Yuvanand, Arya, Preetha and Harini gave a neat performance to bid the year a beautiful farewell. Our returning accompanists’ supportive performance as violinists and mrudangists did not stop with music alone, the coordinated color outfits they all had was very pleasant to watch as well.
Our heartfelt appreciation to all our core team volunteers for their help with various aspects of our event logistics. Thanks to Sowmya, Lakshmi and Karthika for bringing coffee/tea for our volunteers.
Hope you like these Pictures from our event, our sincere thanks to Prasanna for his beautiful captures this month. Many thanks to Vidya Ganesan and Anand Gurumurthy for helping with video recording/editing/upload as always, to produce this crisp excerpts clip for you.
Very excited that our next event is Dasha Tarangini, an event which we’ve all been waiting for, please save Jan 20th 2019 (and Jan 19th also, if you’re a performer) without fail! Evite will be going out shortly and we request you to input your exact RSVPs soon.
CCC is funded in part by California Arts Council (CAC), a state agency and we sincerely thank them for the same.
Happy Holidays and a prosperous New Year 2019 to you all!
