Tender Roots brings its program for Young Budding Musicians to 3 new cities – Pune, Hyderabad and Ahmedabad for the very first time!
Opportunities for selected school children:
- long term mentor-ship from experienced musicians
- opportunities to collaborate with other kids
- experience of performing live at professional concerts
- music scholarships
The Tender Roots Young Buds program is not a competition, but a specially designed program to nurture the next generation of Indian musicians. Students identified through auditions will be contacted whenever there are occasions for them to perform and will get opportunities to interact with professional musicians. Further, students will also be given scholarships starting this year, in exceptional cases.
In the past a Tender Roots ensemble of young musicians from schools across Mumbai had performed live in Mumbai and was even invited to perform at the reputed Jackfruit festival in Bengaluru. Many young students with exceptional talent have performed as part of Teen Prahar and also performed in the presence of maestroes like Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasia & Pt. Shivkumar Sharma. All in all, being part of Tender Roots has proved to be an enriching experience for the many young school students who have benefited from it.
