A Very Happy New Year to all of our CCC families! I hope you're all doing well. The weather co-operated nicely Sunday so all of us could gather to celebrate our milestone 14th anniversary INTRO-SPECIAL event. We had 12 intro performers (Anand, Ashraya, Srijanani, Lasya, Maya, Saharsh, Vedha, Janani, Samhita, Rajalakshmi, Akhilesh, Harshini) who presented in front of our live audience for the first time in CCC and we also introduced one violinist (Nitya) and three new mrudangists (Aryav, Gautam, Aditya) on accompaniment. Samyuktha, a HS senior presented a beautiful (14 beats) RTP to give a grand finish to our event and all of our returning accompanists did a fantastic job.
My sincere thanks to all the gurus who obliged my request for a thematic show and special thanks to Sri Srinath Bala, Smt Sandhya Srinath, Smt Akila Iyer, Smt Savita Rao, Smt Hamsa, Smt Sija for being there to encourage and bless the performers.

My sincere thanks to all the volunteers who helped out with various aspects of our 14th Anniversary special event.
Our next event is on February 5th 2023 (Sunday 2-5pm) so please save the date to attend in-person. We will be having the event on the first Sunday due to the Superbowl conflict on the second Sunday.
