Get ready to witness an evening of western rock, classical, vocal and popular tunes in the city. The music school, Lorraine Music Academy, is organising a musical event to celebrate the achievement of two members of the advisory board. Marian Noronha and Duncan Watkinson were felicitated with the Karamveer Puraskar recently for their contribution to society.

Organised by LAMP Trust, the event will see Lorraine Fiona Aloysius, a pianist and Licentiate of Trinity College of London, sing popular folk songs in English, Hindi, Konkani, Hebrew and French to bring the world flavour to the concert. The event is open to all music lovers on a first come first serve basis. Also, a children’s choir will be give a prelude to the Christmas season by singing jingles and carols, while the academy’s rock band will bring the house down with songs by Abba, Jim Morrison, Bon Jovi and Deep Purple. “Noronha and Watkinson have been my mentors, friends and now advisors for the academy. This is our way of thanking them,” says Aubrey Aloysius of the Trust.

Noronha of Turbocam International, who left India in 1977 with $6 in his pocket, returned to the country to receive the Global Indian Karmaveer Puraskar for his work in the social sector and the ‘No Bribe’ policy of his company. “It’s an honoured to receive recognition for this. I wish more people stand up against bribe,” he says.

British national Watkinson of Turbocam (India), has been felicitated with the Global Citizen Karmaveer Puraskar. Married to an Indian, Watkinson has been staying in India for the last thirty years. So, what’s his opinion on Indians? “Indians are the most easy-going non-violent people I have come across. Most of them dislike corruption but lack the conviction to stand against it,” he says.
