CHENNAI: In a one-of-a-kind event, around 500 children performed at the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan on Friday evening. Organised by Rhapsody Music Foundation, the event saw a variety of genres – folk, semi classical and classical songs. The event was part of Fête de la Musique, the week-long commemoration of the World Music Day that was being organised at various venues in the city. Calling it the biggest event, musician and founder of the foundation, Anil Srinivasan said that the event was a special one and a milestone in the work undertaken by Rhapsody.

Music knows no boundaries and logically there shouldn’t be any age limit either and if someone sought a testimony to that— here were a group of children, a few as young as five illustrating a fine example.

Stressing on the fact that music was more of an educational tool, Srinivasan encouraged the children-- some of them who were visiting the city for the first time.  The little ones who spread the cheer in the form of music hailed from the districts and the city, and explicated the bond music could make, irrespective of the background and culture.

A R Rahman’s Sunshine Orchestra also performed as part of the event.
