MUSICAL OFFERING BY THE SAI SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA (Seventh day of Birthday week celebrations)
After a string of Indian classical sessions over the past one week, this evening it was the turn for a symphony from far off lands.Hearts full of musical love, a group of over 30 musicians from11 countries in three continents joined together to render an array of western classical compositions in a programme entitled "88th Birthday Concert" this evening here at Prasanthi Nilayam.
Conducted by Michael Koehlar of Germany, an internationally reputed musician who has led performances all over the world. the group offered an extravaganza-from the lighthearted divertimento of Mozart to the celebratory martial march of Johann Strauss. In between there was the minuet from Luigi Boccherini .a polka from Strauss and the inimitable G'schichten aus dem weinerwald,the ever green tale from the Vienna woods.
The group concluded with popular Sai Bhajans. Interestingly there were over 10 students from SSSIHL Brass Band Prasanthi Nilayam campus joining the group making it full and complete.
