Our vocal music students regularly perform at community events and charity shows in Dallas Ft. Worth area, on the radio and at the International Hindi Association Kavi Sammelan. Some also sing bhajans in the Shri Ram Mandir in Plano. Most recently they competed in Reach Excellence music competition and bagged two first prizes in different age categories.
Each year, they present a Hindustani music recital for their families and friends in a theater setting. In 2013, they presented Swar-Utsav 2013, under the auspices of ICHF (Indian Cultural Heritage Foundation), at the Garland Plaza Theater. In 2012, they presented Sur-Sewa 2012 at the Plano Courtyard Theater, dedicated to local volunteers of SewaDFW.
Several students choose to pursue Hindustani classical music certification, which signifies a serious pursuit of an extracurricular activity, and may help in college admissions. This track requires dedication and discipline both for the students and the parents. .
Our students have been selected to school and district choirs, and have performed in professional Karaoke presentations.
These activities are one way of building music into the lives of the students.
