With God's grace, our October CCC event went well. Congratulations to all the performers and their accompanists for doing a great job. We heard for the first time Kaustubh and Prasanna on the vocals, and Neeraja on the violin. All our returning performers and accompanists kept the show very lively with their stellar performances.
Our alumni emcees Ranjani and Santhosh Ravindrabharathy did a fantastic job stringing the segments with a lot of personal touches and anecdotes. I am so happy that we have had so many alumni students attempt emceeing at CCC since May '23 and hope to continue this next month also.
I am extremely grateful for our core team who own their tasks and take pride in doing them. Thanks also to the parents who helped us before/during/after the event. Our CCC children and I are grateful to have your help and unrelenting support.
Our CCC resident gurus Rock! We had many of them in attendance at CCC, thank you Smt Kasthuri, Smt Hamsa, Smt Sandhya, Sri Ravindrabharathy, Smt Savita, Smt Anuradha, Smt Snigdha, Sri Srinath, Sri Gopi, Sri Hari, Smt Rama for making time for our CCC performers! It was refreshing to also see Shrikrishna and Rupa supporting all the young students from the first row. We also had some guest teachers (Sri Ajay Narasimha, Smt Sowmya Subramaniam) in the audience supporting students.
Sri Anand Kuchibhotla of Univ. of Silicon Andra attended the event and shared the various programs the University offers to students learning music. Sri Ramaswamy Narayanan mama, a staunch supporter of CCC since 2014 also attended the event and blessed the students.
