Yesterday’s CCC event was such a gratifying one as it enabled the 250+ families who tuned in, to a wonderful afternoon, taking their mind off COVID-19! We showcased 18 of our young talents to our encouraging audience who cheered them all with equal enthusiasm. Our students put in a lot of effort and hard work into their performance for CCC and when it is received with this kind of appreciation, it definitely helps them to strive harder the next time thus the cycle continues. Grateful to all the gurus for helping students deliver their best and also for joining the show to bless our performers! It was truly inspiring to watch the gurus comment after student performances, Thank you!
Hearty congratulations to all our intro performers Santhosh (vocal), Nitika (keyboard), Vidushee (vocal), Anish (vocal), Vishak (veena), Nitya (vocal), Veena (vocal), and Anagha (veena) on their stellar debut performances and kudos to Advika, Mythri and Prisha for presenting their pieces neatly, showcasing their progress since last time. It is heart-warming to see our young students from group OM (Dasha Tarangini) taking center stage to perform their solos now. Accompanists Ranjani, Sanika, Rajeev, Raghav, Sachin, Akshay and Varchas did a great job in their respective roles and compared to our April virtual event, this event was grander because of their support. Each of the performances were unique and special in their own way. Many thanks to Sri Ravindrabharathy Sridharan for accompanying one of our performers (Santhosh).
We are extremely grateful to our resident gurus Sri Shivkumar Bhat and Smt Kasthuri Shivakumar for presenting such valuable pointers and practical, easy to follow tips on voice culture as part of our feature-a-guru series. We truly appreciate their time and efforts in to this presentation which covered a wide range of voice issues and how to help correct them. Hope all students picked up tips specific to their voice issues to implement in their daily practice sessions. We will be adding this segment video to our existing precious collection on our website shortly.
Our sincere thanks to our video team Vidya Anand, Suresh Parameswaran, R Krishnan, Ratna Malladi and Siva Balan who helped with editing all the raw videos. Immensely grateful to Namdev Nayak for his able guidance towards all technical aspects and the glitch-free streaming. Hope you watched us switch from Recorded to LIVE modes in between, which was really fun.
I’d like to acknowledge our core team volunteers who continue to do their respective tasks with regard to attendance, powerpoint slides, photography, website, social media, and young authors write up and keep CCC running smoothly.
