The Nandalala youth concerts by Nandalala mission is the first one I have seen in Bay Area which encourages a budding artists and young learners. This is the most valuable platform a learning child artist could gague his/her learning by singing before a moderate audience. The ambience and the stage provided by Nandalala is the right size for a child who wants to start on a musical journey. There is scope for the children to make mistakes and more importantly recover from those mistakes and finish the concert too. What a wonderful platform!!.
I have seen many concerts of young children who gave a concert for an hour or more and who later went onto become confident performers in bigger audiences. I have seen more than 10 such kids who reaped the concert beginning benefits.
The organizers are very friendly and instill confidence/trust in the young children by their soothing talk and all-familiar-home-kind ambience. The children also get to know about ‘service’ to human kind through various schemes like school bag drive, lunch packing initiatives to older citizens etc.
