Utsav Day 1
Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and charm and gaiety to life and to everything. At least, this was how it felt during the Instrumental Solo competition held on the second day of Utsav 2017.
The contestants created magic with their fingers and instruments. The audience sat enraptured as melodious notes of music washed over us. KMC’s very own Aaditya Sreehari placed second.
He chose to play Ludovico Einaudi’s Nuvole Bianche, an instrumental piece as haunting as it is beautiful. His beautiful rendition of the same on the piano was a delight to listen to. All in all, it was a wonderful afternoon of enchanting music.
