Singing is a talent that can be learnt. According to Prashalini Peiris, a professional singing teacher with years of experience, all you need is the ability of pitch. That might very well be why Prashalini’s school the ‘Cantabile School of Singing’, has well over 100 students all of whom are between the ages of 5 to 50 years. From the children who love to sing to adults who have decided to fulfil their desire to be able to sing, the school has welcomed them all.
If you’re passionate about singing but didn’t think you could sing or if you didn’t have the confidence, make your way to the Lionel Wendt on 14 August (Saturday), to watch SPARKLE and discover for yourself that being able to sing does not necessarily have to be an innate talent.
The choirs of ‘Cantabile School of Singing’ will perform various styles of music ranging from an acapella and western songs ranging from classic, jazz, contemporary pop and some Disney songs. “The songs that will be performed are not what you often see performed here so that the audience can expect something different” says Prashalini, who is directing the concert.
Choreography for the concert was undertaken by Ashanthi Colombage, Crisha Panchal and Azira Esufally, who have helped showcase more than just the singing talent of the students. ASTERIA- a female choral group trained by the producer of SPARKLE, Mahen Peiris, will be the guest performance for the night.
