CM commends Aroha Junior Choir, urges youth to take up music as career
Shillong: Chief Minister Conrad Sangma has called for the need to encourage and promote creative talent in the state.
Speaking at the ‘Symphony of Thanks’ concert organised by the Department of Arts and Culture for the Aroha Junior Choir, Sangma said that there was no dearth of musical talent in the state and urged one and all to support it.
Praising the Aroha Junior Choir which had won accolades at an International Competition recently, Sangma also encouraged the youth to consider music as a viable career option.
“There was a time when opportunities were hard to come by even if one was musically talented but the times are changing. As a government we want to ensure that due recognition and importance is given to all the talented individuals not only in music but all other fields as well,” he said.
The Aroha Junior Choir won in the International Acapella Group category at the Llangollen Eisteddfod Musical Festival held in Wales.
