Join us for a musical evening as our young musicians dedicate their talents to the cause.

About Brightside

“The child is father of the man” ~ William Wordsworth

Children across age & gender have a role to play for the betterment of the society. It is important to give children the opportunity to embrace social responsibility & help build their confidence, so that they can create positive impact in the society. “BrightSide” is an annual event, through which we aim to provide a platform to children across age and gender, contribute their skills & talent to the cause of Neonates Foundation of India.

It is important for children to feel that their voices are being heard and that they can play a significant role as change makers.

About the Music Event

Young and talented geniuses are putting together a musical event held together by Mr. Nagaraj Abhishek, Founder of Srikamal Musicals, to raise the soundbar for neonatal care for the less privileged. With the musical event, the children are going to create awareness about neonatal mortality in India, an issue that requires immediate attention and help raise funds to provide treatment for critically ill newborn babies from underserved families.

The event is mentored by Dr. Ashley Williams, who is founder director and conductor of Bangalore Musical Association. The design sequencing is done by Ms. Arati Punwani Sunawala.
