We begin this year with a bang – on Saturday the 25th of January 2014 – to celebrate our Country’s REPUBLIC DAY!

Lorraine Music Academy and LAMP Trust will host “COME INDIA SING JANA GANA MANA – A Musical Evening in Honour of India on Republic Day eve”, @ 6:30pm on Saturday 25th January 2014 at Epicentre Auditorium, Apparel House, Sector-44, Gurgaon.

(Admission Free. No Passes required. Seats available on first come first served basis. Please come early.)

The students of Lorraine Music Academy and schools across the National Capital Region will express themselves through music by playing instruments and singing songs that make them happy. We will also have folk songs from across North, South, East & West India, patriotic songs, dance performances, poetry recitals and speeches. The musical evening will include performances by children and youth – members of our next generation, and citizens of India. It will include performances by members of the community.

The event will also have the audience singing our National Anthem with precision, pride and passion. The National Patriotic Project “Come India Sing Jana Gana Mana” is a clarion call to 1.27 Billion Indians to stand together for one cause – the Unity of India, by singing one song – our National Anthem, in the correct code as laid out in the Constitution of India.

From this Republic Day eve, we are launching a drive to encourage singing of our National Anthem the right way as per the code laid out in the Constitution of India. We will speak at gatherings of students in schools and educational institutions, during assembly time, in offices and institutions, conduct workshops and training sessions, teaching the correct way of singing the Anthem, with passion, pride and precision, ie- in 52 seconds. We will encourage singing across the National Capital Region and the nation among citizens, community members, members of RWAs, students, youth, offices colleages, etc.

This event forms a part of the ongoing National Patriotic Project “Come India Sing Jana Gana Mana” that was launched on 15th August 2013, our Independence Day.

Aubrey Aloysius, founder of the Lorraine Music Academy and the LAMP Trust, and Chairman of the National Patriotic Project, says “Music is food for the soul. Good food and good exercise gives you good physical stability. A good diet of the right kind of music gives you mental, emotional, intellectual and spiritual stability. Music helps the creative process and sparks the imagination and ideas. When this musical imagination and experience of singing our National Anthem is ignited in a group circumstance, we have the most extraordinary power to change young lives for positive living and nation-building.”

The “Come India Sing” Nation-wide Talent Contest is open to all. This includes a slogan contest for every Indian citizen to express what the National Anthem means to them. The contest also encourages the practising and the singing of “Jana Gana Mana”, and a Patriotic Song.

Participation can be as an Individual, as a Family or as a Group of friends, a school, a college, classmates, office colleagues, communities, RWAs…. All one has to do is record on video one’s family or group or oneself singing the song, upload the video to YouTube, complete the registration form on our website, and be a part of the nation-building project. Age is no bar. This contest is open to all ages.

Select participants and winners of the above project will get opportunities to perform on stage before audiences at various venues in the National Capital Region of Delhi and across the country. Winners of the “Come India Sing” Nation-wide Talent Contest will earn the privilege of being invited to sing the National Anthem alongside the nation’s leaders and to receive their award. Individuals and groups whose performance stand out will also be invited to attend or to perform at an enormous annual cultural program depicting India’s cultural ethos of “Unity in Diversity”, in a large venue in the National Capital Region of Delhi. Thousands of the nation’s youth will together in one voice celebrate our great nation by singing "Jana Gana Mana". This event will be broadcast nationally and internationally, giving participants exposure on a grand scale that will, at the very least, leave them with memories that will last for a lifetime and, at the very most, be the key elements in inspiring them realize their greater dreams.
