The Harmony Chorus comprises of 16 girls and 3boys, children between the ages of 10-15 years who have been learning WesternClassical music for several years at Harmony - The Music School.

ChoirDirector, Ms. Oberoi said, “I constantly encourage all mystudents to be versatile and inquisitive in their musical choices and theirsinging. Taking part in this competition has given both the children and me achance to deeply appreciate yet another genre of music and present it to thecountry with creativity and originality. We have found new ways to expressourselves through this music while choosing to represent truth, goodness andbeauty.”
She adds, “Choir singing has brought out the best inthese children. It is quite difficult to flawlessly execute what we do. Wedon’t just sing in three parts but up to eight different parts. The childrenhave learned to tune with each other, match timbres and blend in as a groupwhile holding on to their individual parts. They have understood the importanceof phrasing as a group, using expressions and even synchronising theirbreathing. I encourage teamwork and really pay attention to detail so we can beexcellent in every performance.”
