MILPITAS, CA: Sangeet Ankur (Music of Sprouts) a chapter dedicated by Sangeet Dhwani, held an exciting musical and dance performance event at the Milpitas Library Auditorium, which was attended by 180 members in the audience. Smita Kulkarni, Program Coordinator of Sangeet Dhwani while welcoming the audience, explained that the goal behind organizing Sangeet Ankur was to encourage and inspire youth and kids to get involved in mastering the Hindustani Classical Raags. She pointed that this event was 12th in its series.

For this event, Sangeet Dhwani had invited six music agencies operating in the San Francisco Bay Area engaged in training kids and youth aged 7 -16 years, in Hindustani Classical Raagas, based on scientific rules needing full dedication and rigorous practice. These schools had deputed their advanced 35 kids and youth who with their brilliant performance, enthralled the audience.

As the Dance Art form is an integral part of Indian classical music, Supriya Puranik, a popular Dance teacher of Bay Area, had deputed her six youth students who performed a spectacular Bharat Natyam Dance on the theme based on God Ramchandra and Lord Krishna which was so relevant to “Janmashtami” being celebrated by members of the Hindu community.

The audience present at this spectacular musical extravaganza was so overwhelmed with appreciation, that they gave a thunderous applause for each batch of students performing both solo and jointly. A few comments by a couple of participating Music Teachers and audience are noteworthy.

Swasti Pandey: “Our deep sense of gratitude for giving the budding talents a platform to showcase their creative side. Events like this are a motivating factor that fuels their pursuit to learn more and more. Sangeet Dhwani has always been well organized.”

Jaya Vidyasagar: “Thank you for such a beautiful evening. It was indeed wonderful to see such young kids take to learning the nuances of classical music so sincerely and present it so beautifully. We laud the efforts being taken by the Sangeet Dhwani team to coordinate and conduct such events. Also, a wonderful opportunity for my student kids as such events will go a long way in motivating them to pursue this art more passionately.”

Aanal Anjaria: “It was my first time attending Sangeet Dhwani event and we thoroughly enjoyed commendable performances by all the young students. Sangeet Dhwani does a wonderful service to the society of students, their parents and teachers, by providing them this platform and the right motivation and inspiration”.
