Carnatic Vidyalaya celebrates Fifth Annual Day
Carnatic Vidyalaya, the premier school of Indian music for children of all ages, celebrated its fifth Annual day on Sunday, October 9. The event was held at the Sylvia Beard Theater in the Buford Community Center at Buford. The program included participation from all students of the school in various performances.
The annual day event showcases the talent of students of Carnatic Vidyalaya and this year’s event was another opportunity for the students to perform on stage. The students rendered great compositions of Sri Thyagarajar, Annamacharya, Muthuswamy Dikshitar, Purandaradasar, Rajagopalachari, Papanasam Sivan, and Mysore Vasudevachar. Also included were Shankarabharanam, NavaragamalikaVarnams, Swarajathis, followed by many geethams and bhajans by younger participants. The students finally concluded with Shri Hanuman Chalisa. It was wonderful to see all the kids perform with remarkable group coordination, along with a perfect sense of thalam and raagam in alignment with shruthi. The audience were treated to a delightful musical evening.
Carnatic Vidyalaya caters to small children, and it was a great sight to watch children as young as four and five, dressed in colorful traditional clothes, perform the songs and slokas with dedication.
Carnatic Vidyalaya, established in 2014, firmly believes that exposure to traditional music at a very early age helps preserve the bond with our culture. Based in Alpharetta, Carnatic Vidyalaya strives to keep cultural ties intact among the young children living in the northern part of Atlanta. As a token of appreciation each participant was awarded a trophy by the founder and teacher of the school, Viji Murali.
