The annual concert, which saw over 1400 participants from various schools offering musical curriculum, is aimed at celebrating and identifying talent.

National Institute of Allied Arts Vice Chairperson, Jill Day said the 2012 edition was the best festival as shown by the vocal and instrumental prowess exhibited by the students.

“This is the best ever, the talent in the country is unmatched,” said Day.

St. Georges College Head Chorister, Daniel Manga also praised the high level of talent, adding that if it is nurtured properly, many stars will be born.

“I was shocked with the level with which talent is abundant, the concert was an eye opener,” he said.

The final was a culmination of three weeks of intensive adjudication with 50 participants getting trophies in various categories including vocals, ethnomusicology, instrumental and choral music.
