The fest aims to promote three values for a musician: listening, learning, testing

Amruthavarshini, the Carnatic Classical Music Club of National Institute of Technology-Tiruchi (NIT-T) has invited participation from school students for ‘Manoranjani ‘13’, its maiden Carnatic classical music competition, from April 7 to 9.

The festival, according to G.S. Madhusudhanan, Research Scholar representing the organising committee, aims at promoting the three most important values for a budding musician: listening, learning, and testing.

The interschool competition will test the participant’s mettle in an active stage atmosphere.

Concert series by young talented musicians will provide listening pleasure, and the lecture-demonstrations by stalwarts in their fields will help students to gain valuable insight into the nuances of classical music.

The festival holds promise as a three-pronged treat for the music connoisseur, he said.

The festival will start off on April 7 with competition under three categories: Carnatic vocal solo, Carnatic non percussion instrumental solo, and Carnatic percussion instrumental solo.

It will be followed by Music quiz. Last month, the music club organised a similar lecture demonstration that highlighted how concepts of Mathematics and Physics get integrated in Indian classical music.
