LAMP Foundation & Lorraine Music Academy presents a “A MUSICAL EVENING OF LIGHT”

(Admission Free. No Passes required. Seats available on first come first served basis. Please come early to be seated by 7:20pm.)

This festive season, on the eve of Diwali – the Festival of Lights – we present to the community in Gurgaon – the National Capital Region of Delhi, India – a unique “Music & Art” experience. The Musical Evening Of Light is a virtuosi performance integrating music along with lighting effects.

Light has its own presence. Beyond its practical functions, such as creating security, illuminating obstacles and marking passageways, light also enables the observer to perceive the city in a different manner. Through light one can rediscover the city’s lines, geography and strength. The preoccupation with light as raw material has developed rapidly over the past twenty years. This process has opened a new world that integrates beauty, concept, abstraction and technology and includes a wide spread of possibilities and usages. Through this Musical Evening of Light, we will together discover the unique quality of the integration of light as a creative element and not just a means to lighting works of art.

The evening will include:

  • Performances by:
  • Performances by a group of 40 Students of the Lorraine Music Academy

Light sources, video projections, body colours and music are an integral significant part of Bernardo Skolnic’s performance. He will introduce the physical and metaphysical significance of light in his performance “Illumination” which deals with the path of the supreme realization of man on earth, common to many ancient religions all around the planet.

Lorraine Fiona Aloysius will play the Piano and Sing in English, Hindi, Konkani & Hebrew (the ancient language of Israel). The evening will include music being played on a wide range of musical instruments including the Piano, Electronic Keyboard, Flute, Rhythm Guitar, Tambourine, Bass Guitar, Lead Guitar, Drums along with Vocal & Choral singing. A surprise musical element from the world of nature is in store for the audience.
