Musical evening for Gurgaon on the eve of Holi
The festival of colous in Gurgaon was spent in a magical way at Epicentre by the Lorraine Music Academy and LAMP Trust. They hosted ''Come India sing festive song- A Musical Evening Celebrating colours'' on the eve of Holi Festival, on Saturday 15thMarch 2014.

It was the first time ever that a creative way of celebrating Holi in an auditorium integrating instrumental music, singing, dance performances and painting of colours were initiated. The audience witnessed musicians, singers, dancers and visual artists – both professionals and children of all ages – performing together on stage to an enthusiastic and participative audience.

Lorraine Fiona Aloysius played on piano the work of French composer Claude Debussy’s 1stArabesque, while versatile painter, sculptor & photographer Savita Malhotra painted on stage to the music. Ganesh Mohan left the audience mesmerized with his dance to festive music which combined art, dance, balancing acts, juggling and skating.

Aubrey Aloysius led the group with 'Edelweiss' - a world famous song about a white flower from the Hollywood movie 'Sound of Music' while children painted on stage. The teenage band and children sang songs depicting colour such as 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow', 'Blue Suede Shoes', 'Yellow Submarine', 'Yellow,' and 'Black Velvet'.

The final act was the painting of patriotic rainbows by children using the colours saffron, white, green and blue. Aubrey Aloysius conducted a brief workshop to educate and encourage the audience to abide by the Constitution of India and respect its ideals and institutions, the National Flag and the National Anthem. This included an explanation on the proper singing the Indian National Anthem as per the code as laid out in the Constitution. The concert ended with audience singing the Indian National Anthem, Jana Gana Mana, with pride, passion, and precision, in the right rhythm, melody and timing, which is in 52 seconds.

The audience left the auditorium feeling bright, happy, exhilarated and surprised that they could celebrate Holi in an auditorium by splashing colours on canvas while simultaneously enjoying the colourful music and vibrantly colourful dances
