Brings back all the bitter-sweet memories of my final inter-class music competition in 1997.
My class did 'A Whole New World' as the instrumental number. I played Aladdin's part on the trumpet, and John Banerji played Princess Jasmine's part on the violin. We were accompanied by piano, guitars and drums. Pradipta Ghosh painted a beautiful backdrop of Aladdin (playing a trumpet) and Jasmine (playing a violin) on a magic carpet.
It was a magical performance, and one I thoroughly enjoyed. We won the prize, of course, though we very narrowly lost to the Batch of '96 for the prized Best Batch award.
I wish I could find a recording of our performance.....
