Inaugural Annual Day of MAUK’s Dance and Music School is a huge success
MAUK celebrated in style the inaugural Annual Day of its Dance and Music School on 28 March 2015. The event proved to be a huge success with over 60 students from different classes getting an opportunity to display their talent to a packed audience of around 200. This event is probably one of MAUK’s biggest achievements in 2015.
The event opened with Silpa Pillai and Abhinav, the hosts for the show, welcoming the audience. The Annual Day was then inaugurated with the usual tradition of lighting the lamp by our main sponsor Ms. Jan Crossland from Barclays, followed by Mr. Sasi Nair of Neil travels and the Chair person of MAUK, Mr. Balamurali Nair. After the welcome speeches by the chair and the Team Lead Mr.Sudheeran Vasudevan, the show commenced with Vanthe Matharam played beautifully on the keyboard.
The semi classical dance by the students of MAUK showed the richness of Ganesha Vandanam. Our little stars of the classical dance group then performed a beautiful fusion dance, which was highly appreciated by the audience. The performance on the keyboard and guitar by our students was outstanding, especially the sing along session by one of our students. The show then changed over to percussion, with the students displaying their skills mastered in wonderful segments ranging from Tabla to Mridangam to Chendamelam.
The success of the show was mainly as a result of our dedicated teachers of our classes:
• Mr. Albert Vijayan, renowned music composer worked with the legend Dr. KJ Yesudas and other singers.
• Mr. Vinodkumar Sukumaran, renowned percussionist and a key player in Navadhara Orchestra
• Ms. Santosh G Nair, Classical dance teacher who have received Balasree Award from the President of India.
• Rohoney Dayanand, the cinematic dance teacher who recently choreographed Ardhanaareeswaran
The teachers were given awards as recognition for their effort and determination for the success of our classes. All our students were also recognised with medals and certificates by the Directors of MAUK for their attendance and performance. MAUK would like to thank all the Directors and volunteers who have helped to make our first venture a successful one.
Given the success of the event and positive feedback received, we plan to celebrate this event on an annual basis. We look forward to meeting you all next year!
