“The song of a bird brings the dawn.
The song of a child gives hope to that dawn.”
These lines stand true for our Choral Group, who once again spread rays of hope and peace to the world around.
The chilly twilight of 15th January was warmed up by the melodious and lively performance of our highly talented Choral Group. Buzzing with excitement, the lush green lawns of Gandhi-King Plaza held the “Celebration of the Power of Non – Violent actions and the Life of Martin Luther King Jr.”, jointly organized by the India International Centre, Gandhi Peace Foundation and Working Group on Alternate Strategies. Mr. Suhas Borker, Convener, Working Group of Alternate Strategies was the host for the evening.
All the 200 students of the Choral Group looked magnificent in their long snow-white gowns, carrying themselves with grace throughout the evening. The sweetness of their voices matched the glow on their faces, while performing around 10 songs under the guidance of their Choral Master, Mr. Sunny Verughese.
The evening started with “Precious lord…” – King’s favourite poem – sung beautifully by our little nightingales. They also sang - I have a dream, Grandfather’s Clock, Knowing Me Knowing You, All through the night, Taaqat watan ki humse hai, Andhere jahan mein hum shama jala denge – to mention a few.
Mr Indu Prakash, a Homeless Rights activist, was highly pleased by our Choral Group and encouraged them to reach great heights in the times to come.
The audience was spell bound by their performance and sang along with them, joining hands with each other.
