Celebrating music and children

For the past few years, the Rhapsody Music Foundation, headed by pianist Anil Srinivasan and aided by vocalist Dr Sudha Raja, has been working with children across different demographies in the city, and now reaches over 60,000 children. The aim of the foundation is to use music as a facilitative educational aid to reach as many children as possible. 

 Their collaboration with the NGO NalandaWay has resulted in a path-breaking intervention in the Corporation of Chennai schools, where children now learn visual art and music from trainers trained by both the foundations. 

On June 21, to celebrate World Music Day, Rhapsody Music Foundation presents ‘Voices in Harmony’, a specially curated event, supported by ITC Mangaldeep. Over a thousand children will raise their voices in harmony, demonstrating unity in diversity.  Many children who participated in the Rhapsody- The Hindu Young World summer workshops will also participate alongside children from several city and Corporation of Chennai schools.

 The event will take place at Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Kilpauk's TAG auditorium at 6.30 p.m. Music maestro A.R. Rahman's The Sunshine Orchestra, a special initiative with children from underprivileged backgrounds, will also perform under conductor Srinivasa Murthy. Well-known Carnatic vocalist Sudha Ragunathan will be the chief guest, and music director Harris Jayaraj will be the guest of honour. 

 For details, contact Srinivas at Rhapsody at 9943306621 or 044-42316161.
