Glorious Festival Of Harmony is a 2-day festival featuring 30 of the best choral groups from all over India, participating from schools, colleges, youth bands, independent groups and choirs, and presenting various styles of music, bringing together on the same stage a symphony of excellence. This year, it was held on the 9th and 10th of August in the grounds of Bishop Cottons Girls’ School. The CJC choir performed along with other PUC and school choirs on 9th.
The choir sang Chekkele by Avial- a song that describes the sad fate of Chathan and Neeli who are two farmers. The song highlights the plight of a lot of farmers in India in the form of a story, made into a song.
The Blessing by Steven Curtis Chapman is another one of the songs the choir performed. It is a beautiful farewell prayer. This song was also sung for Father Jose’s sendoff.
Last but not the least, the choir sang Livin’ On A Prayer by Bon Jovi . The famous song is about a fictional working class couple, Tommy and Gina, who struggle to make ends meet and maintain their relationship.
Our performance was met with a lot of appreciation. It was a grand success. It was a tremendous and fun experience for all in the choir and the audience.
On behalf of the choir, I would like to thank Mr. Prashanth Gnanamuthu for conducting us, the band who played for us and Glorious for giving us a platform to display our talents.
