Music is the greatest communication in the world. Even if people don’t understand the language that you’re singing in, they still know good music when they hear it. To promote singing talents in the school, a singing competition titled ‘The Amazing Voice’ was organized for children of class V to VIII. The competition was held in two categories, English Duet and Hindi Solo, in the tastefully decorated Middle School Hall on Tuesday, May 02, 2017.
The students were eager to participate in the competition. Hence, a large number of students turned out for the
audition round. The audition was conducted by our music teachers, Mr. S. Nanda and Ms. S. Shepherd. Each one of them gave their best, but finally only 23 were selected to participate in the competition.
The budding singers put up the amazing show with their melodious voice and mesmerized the audience present in the hall. The judges for the competition were Mr. I. Saunders, Mr. J. Lawrence and Mrs. S. Kumar. The participants were judged on their melody, rhythm, synchronization and general impression. It was a tough contest and even the judges found it difficult to decide the winners.
Mr. J. Lawrence and Mrs. S. Kumar in their speeches lauded the singing talent of the students and advocated that music has great power, rhythm and soul. Song and music are two separate things yet united. It inculcates human virtues and inspires to be good human beings. This was truly brought alive and brought tears even in the eyes of the judges when one of you sang the song titled “Meri Maa.”
The BHS Principal, Mr. D. A. Luke congratulated the winners and praised the students for their wonderful performance.
