The sweltering afternoon sun may have seemed provocatively harsh, but as it arced and edged toward the horizon, a sweet lullaby wafted it to pleasance. The Eastern Vocals open event of Invictus 2017 saw a wide timbre of participants, much to the delight of the rapt audience.
Each performance was capped off at twenty-five minutes, with groups ranging from six to twelve members harmonizing in duets and groups in addition to the entrancing solos. The judges, Dr Ullas from MMMC and Dr Abhishek from the Department of Anesthesiology, KMC Manipal, had the unenviable task of determining the most melodious performance of the day.
