The rich compositions of Bharat Symphony, Shanti Priya, and Eri Me To, composed by Dr. Subramaniam and rendered by Krishnamurti and over 50 musicians playing in harmony, enthralled the audience and introduced them to the elegant tapestry of Indian culture.

The occasion was graced by the presence of Marcia Rollemberg, the First Lady of the Federal District and spouse of the Governor of the Federal District, Rodrigo Rollemberg.
