‘Euphonia 2012’

In tune One of the choirs performing.
The spirit of choir singing was recently celebrated at the Indiranagar Methodist Church with ‘Euphonia 2012’ — a choral singing festival which witnessed some of the best choirs in the City perform. The festival was the perfect platform for these choirs to showcase their talent and they seized the opportunity with remarkable enthusiasm, putting up a line-up of pieces which had the audience humming along.

There was quite a crowd at the church — many of the audience members knew the songs which were being performed and hummed along. The evening kicked off with the choir from Indiranagar Methodist Church. Dressed in red and black, they performed a soft rendition of ‘We Are Here For You’ which set the perfect tone for the rest of the occasion.

The choir from the Mar Thoma Syrian Church then took the spotlight, performing three pieces which went down fairly well with the audience — ‘Whisper, Whisper’, ‘Angel’s Carol’ and a Malayalam song called Thaarangal Niranirayayi Koshy.

They were accompanied by Tigi Thomas on the organ and were conducted by Anit V Kurian. Elle, who had come to watch the choirs, was particularly impressed by the first act. “It was very melodious — a great way to spend the evening. It’s nice that so many youngsters have come to see the choirs,” she says.The choir from St Luke’s Church was next, conducted by Tara Jaypaul.

They performed ‘I Heard The Bells on Christmas Day’, a Tamil song called Vaana Doodhar
Senaigal and ‘Behold, I Bring You Good Tidings’. The crowd in the church could be seen humming and snapping their fingers to the rhythm. The St Andrew’s Church Choir was conducted by Andrew Bhagyanathan. They performed ‘Sing With All The Saints’, ‘Ding Dong Merrily’ and ‘Angel Tidings’.

The other choirs which performed includes those from the Pavanasar Lutheran Church, the Christian Missionary Fellowship International Church, the Wesley English Children’s Choir, the East Parade Malayalam Church and the Richmond Town Methodist Church. The evening came to a close with the choir from the Indiranagar Methodist Church once more — conducted by Indira Mahadevan, they sang three beautiful pieces and wrapped up their performance with ‘We Three Kings’.Many families had come for the occasion, deciding that this was a great way to spend a Saturday evening. It was evident that many were familiar with the pieces and all in all, it was an evening of general good spirits and bonhomie.
