Singers invited to participate in 
A grand multimedia musical theater production
To be performed in  the twin cities in May 2011
Here is a unique opportunity for singers from the Minneapolis/St. Paul Indian community to perform in this magnum opus Shanti that is at the forefront of the Indian American Choral movement. Shanti is an expansive, collaborative musical theater production that explores the meanings of peace and interconnectedness through choral music. Shanti has made history in Cincinnati OH, Lehigh Valley PA and Houston TX and is soon to be performed in Tampa FL ( . We are working towards a performance of Shanti in the twin cities in May next year.

Shanti’s scale is staggering. At the core of the production is an 120 strong combined choir featuring an Indian community choir along with western choirs. Accompanying this choir will be a 30 piece orchestra along with several dance companies.

Here is a rare opportunity to work with internationally renowned musician and composer Kanniks Kannikeswaran, composer and director of Shanti - A Journey of Peace.
