Dear members,

I hope Mother’s day was memorable for all who attended CCC as it sure was the case for me! Many of our performers chose compositions praising the Supreme Mother or presented ragams/krithis that are favorite to their mother! Vignesh Thyagarajan, our lead presenter for the April JAM session started off the event with his group and together they presented a wonderful Thodi mala compiled by Vignesh! We all found out the hidden vocal abilities of Vignesh through this as well and the performers were so talented that they caught on to this composition in a very short span! We’ll share the video clip/summary from that soon.

Manya and Aishwarya were the two new vocalists we introduced yesterday and they both had the privilege of starting and ending the program beautifully for us. Shreyas’ violin solo and Hiranya-Lavanya twins veena duet were both new to our CCC audience and surely enthralling. Janani, Sweta, Rahul, and Sanika did a wonderful job presenting their chosen items showcasing their progress since last year.

Our string accompanists from our CCC pool Ananya, Shubha, Geeta, Aparna, Sanjna, and Divya did a wonderful job supporting their vocalists. Performers from our rich pool of accompanists, Thamba, Akshay Aravindan, Srivastsan, Shrikrishna, Pranav, Santhosh, and Ajay did an outstanding job and Vishal joined this pool by getting introduced to CCC audience this month. Kudos to all these children for all their efforts!

Our sincere thanks to all the core volunteers and the parents of the performers who helped with setup/clean-up and special thanks to the moms Maha Sriram and Rama THyagarajan who brought chai for our volunteers. Our expert photographer Prasanna has already uploaded the pics from our event, please check out the photos at the URL below.
