Tanusree Yakeen, one of the singers of the event has been playing the piano for the last 8 years and this was one of the many shows, where she performed. Candidly, when asked, she said, ''This is not my first stage show but it was exciting as I got to learn a new carol for this performance.'' Violin, piano, guitar, electronic keyboard and drums were dexterously played by children of the academy.
Another parent, who was managing the backstage hustle bustle said that kids as young as 4 to 18 years have been practising for the past many weeks. A few children joined the practise sessions during the past 10 days. The show, when it started with Jana Gana Mana was mesmerizing, especially the Swahili song sung in the memory of Nelson Mandela. What followed had everyone tapping their feet to Jingle Bells, Rudolph the red nose reindeer and swaying to the First Noel. Lorraine Fiona Aloysius also participated and sang for the jam-packed auditorium in her mellifluous voice (although she admitted that she was not well). Students from Scottish High International School and Blue Bells Model School also participated.
Talking about the event, Mr Aubrey Aloysius said, ''The ‘Come India Sing A Christmas Carol’ is an event organised by the Lorraine Music Academy and the LAMP Trust to herald the Christmas season and encourage citizens of the National Capital Region to sing Christmas carols and share the season’s spirit of love, joy and peace. A series of events have been planned across the NCR region by this Academy. These events form a part of the ongoing National Patriotic Project 'Come India Sing Jana Gana Mana,' an initiative of LAMP Trust and Lorraine Music Academy, launched on 15th August 2013. This project is a clarion call to the children, youth, the 1.27 billion Indians, and to the Indian diaspora across the globe, to stand together for one cause – the Unity of India, by singing one song – our National Anthem, in the correct way as per the code laid out in the Constitution of India.''
