Junior musicians from AR Rahman’s foundation will perform at the Dakshinachitra Museum.
What’s it about? To mark children’s day, the Dakshinachitra museum and the Sunshine Orchestra – a project by the AR Rahman foundation, are collaborating to showcase young musicians. The foundation provides them with free training. The event on November 13 titled, ‘Symphony of Little Stars – A Celebration of Young Talent’ will only feature kids and young adults.
- The group has many juniors who were chosen from public schools and were coached in string and brass instruments. They recently performed at the inauguration of the Chess Olympiad.
- They’ve ventured into films playing for the movie Ponniyin Selvan. The seniors have been on the scene for a long time and have travelled the world to perform.
The event: Since the senior performers usually get the spotlight, Dakshinachitra wanted to allow the junior musicians to perform, who have been practising with the conductor Rameettha Venkatesh.
