SYMPHONY 2017, the Annual Cultural Programme of Sapphire International School, Ranchi, saw life and energy being propelled into a rainbow of cultural feats. The entire programme revolved around the theme “East Meets West”.
Gracing the occasion was Sarod Maestro Amaan Ali Bangash, the eldest son and disciple of the Sarod Maestro, Ustad Amjad Ali Khan. Amaan Ali Bangash not only inspired the gathering with his words but also uplifted their souls with a divine sarod recital. Accompanying him on the tabla was Shri Mithilesh Kumar Jha, disciple of his father Gopikant Jha who received his training from Bulbul Maharaj.
This year the programmes were woven around the theme “East Meets West”, where each class presented events incorporating Eastern and Western culture. An English play by the Senior School, African Dance and Ball Dance by our tiny tots were showcased with éclat, whereas the middle school students performed a Michael Jackson Dance, and Hindi & Maithili skits, to portray the cultures of the East and the West.
