in sync The 28 member youth girls choir performing in Alliance Francaise.

A concert open to everyone in the City, it turned out to be a treat. After all, being witness to a group of young girls singing more sweetly than a songbird itself, is something one doesn’t see everyday.

The Songbirds of India who performed to a packed house at the event, was a 28-member-girls choir who also have had the distinction of being the first Indian youth choir to have participated in an International Youth Festival.

The choir had recently also returned from a successful tour of Germany, performing a several prestigious venues, including the famous Frauenkirche, the Dresden Mayor's Office and the concert hall at Hellerau. But back in Bangalore, they were full of energy, all for the city’s audience.

The musical performance was conducted under the baton of V Narayanaswamy, also fondly known as ‘NS’ by the choir and ‘maestro’ by others. Under his guidance, the choir presented a delightful mix of music with everything from Western classics to spiritual songs in it. The choir performed effortlessly and to see such young talent was no less than moving. While their singing talent  explained the name given to this choir, it was the age of these young performers that kept the audience in awe. “It was a delightful performance by the choir and to hear these girls create such wonderful music was such a great joy for me. Talent like this should be encouraged,” said Jyothi, a music enthusiast.
The young performers, continued to surprise the audience with songs from genres as varied as Western and Indian spiritual songs which they followed up with traditional folk songs. It was truly a treat for music lovers in the City to see these girls sing.

The crowd in the auditorium was enchanted with the beauty of the music and the grace with which the girls sang. The performance was no less than professional. The songs were sweet and charming and were thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. “It was really great to see this performance and I hope this choir does well in the future too,” said Sandhya, an IT professional, who had come to see them perform.
