Dear members,

What a lovely event it was Sunday when twenty five of our repeat performers presented their best in our well attended CCC event! Big salute to our performers for keeping within their allotted duration that we finished the event on time even though we had FIVE main slots, and three with OnTheSpot (OTS) accompanists. Many Ghana ragams were presented and the children all did a neat job that we received nice compliments from teachers and rasikas alike!

Each of our performers sang with some manodharma in their presentation. CCC structure as I mentioned on stage is meant to cater to students in all levels and each student picks what is comfortable for them or some challenge themselves one step ahead. We witnessed the later predominantly in our Feb. event as each of our repeat performers strived to demonstrate an improved musical aspect in their presentation by challenging themselves and also succeeding in it. We are so proud of you Kavya, Ambika, Rohini, Shreya, Manasa, Gayathri, Anirudh, Geeta & Aparna.

Our talented accompanists enhanced the show with their wonderful support, kudos to them all and special mentions yet again to our OTS accompanists Apurvaa, Aditya and Aishwarya (on string) and Avinash, Srihari and Pranav (on Mrudangam). Our budding artists Urmika, Anirudh Rao, Prahlad, Sachin, Vandana, Rajeev, Arush, Sahana did their part beautifully with their rehearsed support as well. My heart pounced with pride when our senior kids gave their finale performance with their instruments! Geeta, Aparna, Akshay, Shrikrishna and Gayathri: our best wishes to you all as you await college decisions.

Huge thanks to ourcore volunteer teamfor helping with various aspects to make it a smooth event and please see below the visual treats you’re waiting for!
