Colourful carousel
“May the colours of the night take you on an enchanting carousel ride…” and so began the evening of variety entertainment. The curtains opened on ‘The Quartet’ from Bishop’s College performing a rendition of the famous ‘Killing Me Softly’.

Organised by the Interact Club of Bishop’s College, ‘Carousel’ was held recently at the school auditorium. Proceeds from the show will be used for the welfare of children suffering from Down’s Syndrome, represented that evening by Kosala, who captivated the audience with his dance performances.

‘Still Born’ from St. Peter’s College opened the band category with their covers of two well-known hits. They were followed by the guys from Wesley College, who used their music as a means of praising the Lord. ‘Stillwater’, from Royal College played a repertoire of popular songs, including their original ‘Hey You’.

The array of instrumental items presented by St. Bridget’s Convent, D.S. Senanayake College and Isipathana College were both original and entertaining. ‘Siribora’ from Isipathana College got the crowd going with their rhythmic tunes. With instruments ranging from flutes to electric guitars, this band really displayed a successful fusion of Eastern and Western music.

‘Paradox’ from D.S. Senanayake College added a unique touch with their choice of music. The three Bridgeteens got everyone’s toes tapping with their ‘piano and drums’ item.

A comparatively mellow piano and saxophone number was presented by Zahara Samal from Muslim Ladies College and Anjalee Sumanasekara from Bishop’s College.

The two solo performances by Safra Deen from Bishop’s College and Christine Welikala from Alethea International School rounded up the evening.
