Harmony of young talents

Harmony of young talents

The Bangalore School of Music (BSM) recently celebrated Children’s Day with musical celebrations at the Alliance Francaise. Young artists of BSM from grades one to five performed at the event.The programme included a variety of shows like piano string trio, a string quartet, piano, classic guitar, violin solos and duets.

The opening string was a duo of the piano and violin, which was followed by a medley on keyboard. A group of six children performed the songs If I Were a Butterfly and Chatanooga Choo Choo. Actions accompanied the song and the kids looked adorable. “My son Sadanand is learning the violin but today, he sang. He is in the third standard and is very keen about music. I felt very proud when I saw him on stage today. All the children here are very talented,” said Bindu, an excited mother.

This was followed by Piano Harmonies, where some of the students performed on the piano after which three others played the violin, cello and the piano in perfect sync. They performed various melodies of yesteryears like Serenade by Mozart, repertoire of music as Haidel, Beethoven and Brahms and old favourites as Bacarolles and Dances.

There were solo performances on the guitar by two students which was followed by a violin extravaganza. The children played with great confidence and didn't frown even if they made any mistakes.

The show ended with a brilliant performance, the Golden Brass Ensemble by the combined bands of St Mary’s Home and the Frank Anthony Public School. This was conducted by maestro V Narayanaswamy. They played some of his compositions as well. The children received much applause for their performance.

The BSM not only imparts musical knowledge to its students but also sponsors one talented child artiste. This time, it sponsored a student of the Smriti Nandan Foundation, which promotes young talent in Hindustani and Carnatic music.
