Chords of Giving – An Electrifying Evening for Music Lovers!
The evening was electrifying, as singer Sona Mohapatra and music composer Ram Sampath brought all their talent and energy to the fore, to set the stage on fire. Performing at a concert titled Chords of Giving, in aid of Akshaya Patra, at Phoenix MarketCity, Bengaluru on January 13, 2017, the duo, along with their band, gave all the attendees an evening to remember. They were welcomed by Shri Chanchalapathi Dasa, Vice Chairman, Akshaya Patra and were also joined by the Foundation’s beneficiaries on stage. Sona, a powerhouse live performer, sang non-film as well as Bollywood songs. The icing on the cake was a tribute to the late RD Burman – one of India’s seminal music composers! Also, a big vote of thanks to the force behind the evening – our sponsors! These included GIC; Phoenix MarketCity, Bengaluru; BookMyShow; RedFM 93.5 Bengaluru; MeraEvents; Aloft Bengaluru Cessna Business Park; White Massif Event Management; Vivanta by Taj – Whitefield, Bengaluru and Solar-Apps Energy Private Limited.
