The quiet and hallowed interiors of the majestic Church of St. Francis of Assisi located at the World Heritage UNESCO site in Old Goa came alive with music as choirs from three towering educational institutes – Oxford University, Goa University and Goa Institute of Management came together for a one-of-its-kind choral performance during the festive season in Goa. Indo-Western performances by Goan musicians added to the beauty of the evening.
An evening of choral music titled ‘Goonj, an Echo’, featured The Somerville College Choir, Oxford University, conducted by William Dawes. The choir of the Goa Institute of Management and the Goa University Choir were conducted by Santiago Lusardi Girelli, Research Professor under the Western Music Chair of the Goa University.
The performance is one of the several initiatives undertaken by GIM to celebrate its completion of 25 years of imparting knowledge to the country’s future corporate leaders.
Said Dr. Ajit Parulekar, Director GIM, “We are probably the only B school to have had a choir for 7 years. It has become a GIM tradition. But why have a choir in a B school at all? If we look at what it demands to be a part of a choir, it answers all the questions eloquently. It demands team work, discipline, dedication, tenacity, perseverance, observation, synergy, listening skills, commitment and punctuality. Qualities we wish to inculcate in any young manager today. “
The Somerville College Choir of Oxford University is being hosted by the Goa Institute of Management for the very first time in Goa.
