Yes it does !
Here's presenting to you, 'The Sunshine Orchestra'
The A R Rahman foundation's flagship program that was launched in the year 2008.
Brain-child of our founder and Oscar winning composer Dr A R Rahman,
who one day while staring at the downtrodden areas across the roads from the window of his studios; suddenly felt the need to implement a change that can transform and uplift the society that we live in and hence came into effect our program 'the sunshine orchestra'. With the Sunshine Orchestra; the foundation aims to dissolve all boundaries through music.
This journey of a decade has been the most memorable for one and for all of us at the foundation alike. The teachers, students, faculty, volunteers and supporters; all work as a team and with one goal; 'a world filled with music; & aiming for a tomorrow filled with peace'. This is a story of hope and it speaks volumes about what my dear friends, is the true power of music!
What began as a team of 5 students; has now successfully transformed and shaped the lives of over 150 students and all this through music. These students who once walked in through the doors of KM Music Conservatory, are today stepping out in the glorious world as roaring lions and lionesses, in music. They are embodied with passion and with the zeal to achieve in life.
These kids are the change makers our society needs today and as first generation musicians they are making their families and the foundation proud every time they perform on stage... this year they performed for various events including - Jalam, TED Talks , Harman’s 10th anniversary concert, Voice of legends - A global tour with the legendary S.P. Balasubramaniam, and most prominent of them all; they’ve shared the stage with none other than Dr. A R Rahman, for one of his live shows “ARR live”
To support our cause you can engage the sunshine orchestra to perform in your celebrations, events, concerts and film scores.
