Academy for Musical Excellence (AMEC) is hosting the second edition of the "Yuva Music Festival", Transforming Lives with Music. The festival will have 20 concerts, 10 competitions, 6 talk shows and 1 International Piano Master class and Workshop.
Yuva Music Festival of YMF'15 is essentially a 'Celebration of Creativity' or a 'Platform for the Young artists'; where it's all about setting one's wildest dreams and passion into motion. Yuva Music Festival (YMF) is not only a panorama of events to test the artistic skills of the youth from all over the country but also an endeavour to bring together eminent artists as well as celebrities across the globe in an attempt to unite and strengthen our society through music.
This year, the festival initiated a special undertaking - a musical concert on 9th May to kick off YMF viz. "We Shall Overcome"; in aid of the victims of the devastating earthquake in Nepal. "We are very much by the side of our brothers and sisters from Nepal who have suffered heavily due to the earthquake. We strongly believe that Music heals many a wound and in our small way, we and the participating children of Yuva Music Festival are going to organise concerts to raise funds for the people of Nepal" said Surendranath. Present at the press conference for Yuva Music Festival were Mr. Surendranath Majumdar, Director - YMF & AMEC; Mr. Stephane Amalir, Director - Alliance Française du Bengale; Mr. Amyt Dutta, eminent musician; Mr. Satrajit Sen, Filmmaker and Musician; Mr. Premendu Bikash Chaki, Cinematographer and Mr. Aritra Dasgupta, Singer alongside the talented students from Academy for Musical Excellence (AMEC).
