The Chennai Youth Sinfonietta aims to help musically inclined youngsters achieve their potential.
What’s it about? In 2019, Sachin Das and Kishore Das of Musee Musicals and Greek-born pianist Panos Karan came up with the idea of the Chennai Youth Sinfonietta. Karan set up Keys of Change to help young adults achieve their dreams through music. Together, for the Chennai Youth Sinfonietta, they performed in front of a live audience at Vani Mahal.
- Karan began with a solo piano piece with La Campanella that drew cheers. He then moved on to Chopin.
- 15 youngsters also performed. There was even some last-minute drama with one young girl’s violin string breaking, but she repaired it quickly.
Who said what? Karan said it’s the dream of every musician to perform in front of a live audience as it gives them the confidence to improve. Why was Chennai chosen? According to Sachin, it has the highest number of youngsters pursuing western classical music.
