“Where words fail, music speaks.”- Hans Christian Andersen.

The world speaks many languages, but the one which connects us all is the universal language of music. It resonates across all differences and effectively wins over hearts.

Celebrating this spirit and language of music, The Indian School organised a zonal level orchestra competition on 29 August 2022. The following four schools participated: Apeejay School, Saket; Apeejay School, Panchsheel; Amity International School, Saket, and Green Fields School, Safdarjung Enclave.

Principal, Ms Tania Joshi, warmly welcomed all the participants and lauded the role of music in the holistic development of students. Emcees Ananya Basu and Oishee Halder of class VIII introduced the esteemed judges from the field of music, namely, Shri Prashant Kumar Behera and Shri Prashant Kumar Pradhan.

Shri Behera, an eminent musician with over 30 years of experience in singing and music composition, is the winner of the prestigious Sangeet Acharya award, a national scholarship from the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, and the Odisha State Youth Award.

With roots in Odisha, Shri Prashant Kumar Pradhan addressed the gathering and spoke about his humble background and journey to becoming an established sitar player. With a passion for teaching that suits the needs of diverse students, he shared information about his institution- the Soka Music School in Safdarjung, New Delhi.

The two-hour show was a musical extravaganza that celebrated not just the power of music but was also a display of the spirit of unity and harmony. All participants received certificates of appreciation for their successful participation in the competition.
