Shillong Chamber Choir starts new trend
There seems to be no stopping this band from Shillong. The Shillong Chamber Choir, who shot into llimelight following their victory in India’s got Talent and winning the Forbes Person of the Year award 2010, conducted the world’s first personalised music concert in Mumbai recently. The group’s maiden concert in Mumbai set a benchmark by becoming the first personalised concert where audiences were offered to select songs of their preference for the choir to perform at the concert. Audiences could nominate their song preferences through http://www.facebook.com/liveindigo, http://www.twitter.com/lliveindigo.
Best described as eclectic, youthful, crossover music, the repertoire of the Shillong Chamber Choir includes works of western classical greats such as Handel, Bach, Gershwin and Mozart, besides popular genres of music such as rock, retro, Hindi crossover and Khasi folk songs.
The event in Mumbai was promoted by Indigo Live, a joint venture partnership between Bengaluru-based conglomerate Jupiter Media Ventures and Red Light Management and live music promotion companies, both committed to promoting live music in India through city concerts, club performances, destination festivals and creating concepts to promote world music in india.
