February posed many challenges from all aspects, starting from finding a venue, performers, accompanists, deciding the best date/time because of the Superbowl conflict etc. but with God's grace, the event concluded successfully without a glitch yesterday. I'd like to offer many thanks to Shirdi Sai Parivaar for allowing us to host our event and sincere appreciation to all our members who attended and encouraged our performers.
It was a short and sweet program with 4 vocal performances and one violin solo; Rahul, Aishwarya, Aparna, Bharat and Ashwin all did a fine job in presenting their items with refinement and poise. Accompanists Ashwin, Akshay A, Akshay V, Ajay, Divya, Malini, Sanjay, and Vignesh did a fine job embellishing where they could, to elevate the concert experience for all. All of the children are surely to be commended for keeping withi their allotted timeslots. This greatly helped us finish the event as scheduled (we finished at exactly 3pm!) so Thank you!
My sincere thanks to all the volunteers who helped with setup and cleanup with special mention to Murali, Thyagu, Ashwin, Srikant, Aravindan, Venkatesan, Vaidhy, Sriram and of course, Namdev / Mohan! Hope you enjoy the pictures from our event below, thanks to Prasanna for capturing and collating them!
Please mark your calendar for March 3rdSunday afternoon for our next event, more details will be posted shortly on our website.
Best regardsâ¦..Padma Mohan
PS: It was a heart breaking loss for the 49ers at the Superbowl, they put up a good game though and I still feel good having done our part to support them!
