CUTTACK: Ravenshaw Radio 90.4 MHz is poised to be more music to the ears, literally. The fledgling community radio service of Ravenshaw University, the first of its kind in the State, is all set to launch a mega singing contest for students with the winner anointed the ‘Voice of Ravenshaw’.

 The objective is to give a platform to the students to showcase their latent talents while giving the listeners a huge boost. The contest would be carried out through the month with the declaration of ‘Voice of Ravenshaw’ scheduled for September 30.

 According to the chairman, Ravenshaw Radio, Netajee Abhinandan, the contest would involve broadcast of song recordings of the participating students over three weeks. They would be judged by a panel of elite singers and musicians.  The first qualifying round of the contest would be held on September 8 and 20 students would be selected for round two. The selected students would record their songs without musical accompaniment which would be played in the ‘Music Room’ programme that is aired from 5 pm to 7 pm. The listeners would vote the winners through SMS or email.

 Based on the voting outcome, 10 would proceed to the next round and five to the grand finale. The Super Five would have to record songs afresh which would be played from September 23 to 29. And on September 30, the winner of the  highest number of votes will be declared ‘Voice of Ravenshaw’.

 “The winner would get opportunities in professional music and also be able to cut his/her own album. Each of the 20 qualifying students from the first round would also be certified as Approved Artistes of Ravenshaw and given a certificate of merit by the Drama Society,” Abhinandan said.
