The annual day celebration of Neelakanta Sivan School of Arts and Culture is getting grander with each passing year.

The third annual day celebration of the music school was held at Ganapathy Sachidananda Ashram, Velachery, on October 7.

The day-long celebration was inaugurated by vocalist Unnikrishnan, who lauded the music school for giving good training to the students.

He wanted the parents and students to provide all the assistance needed to C.S. Sajeev to take the music school to greater heights.

He advised the students to practice music regularly, as music helps in the development of a person. Appreciating the performance of five-year-old C.S. Hrishikesh on the mridangam, he said the boy has all the qualities to be called a prodigy.

The celebration kicked off with a Namasankeerthanam by Kadayanallur Rajagopal and group, followed by performance by the students of the music school and culminating with a grand violin concert by M. Chandrasekaran and G. Bharathi.

Thavil artist Valayapatti S. Malarvannan, SAN Academy Centre Head Geetha Reghuraman and Dr. Ranjith Kumar Vijayan, Consultant, Madras Medical Mission Hospital, were the special invitees of the function.

The music school has branches at Srinivasa Academy, Velachery, and at Palavakkam.

The music school can be contacted at 9042918206.
