In a confluence of violinists and cellists, both amateur and established, Vasant Valley School provided a platform to scores of musicians who showcased their musical prowess on Thursday.

Student musicians from several schools of the city had gathered together to recreate some of the better-known pieces of LV Beethoven, WA Mozart and JS Bach. While the concert began with solo performances by students of Class 5-8 of Vasant Valley School, it gathered greater momentum as members of the Calcutta String Quartet took over.

"This is a wonderful platform for students to display their talent and we are extremely proud to be hosting such an event. While students from several schools performed here, the host school has seen the maximum number of participants," said a teacher of Vasant Valley School.

The final performance saw the Delhi Community Orchestra take centre stage, as conductor Ganesh Dutta guided the artists through their rendition of the classical art.

Along with members of the Calcutta String Quartet, there students from other schools as well -- American Embassy, Delhi School of Music, Vasant Valley and Mater Dei, Pathways School and the Japanese Embassy School, among others.

The orchestra churned out numbers such as Beethoven's Minuet in G, Amazing Grace, Mozart's Amadeus and Bach's Two Minuets.
