Mangaluru: The Balmatta Musical Association completed 90 years of its glorious history last year. The Balmatta Musical Association (BMA) has been serving the church in particular and the society at large through its choirs and music. 1926 is a very auspicious year in the history of the Balmatta Musical Association.
It was then that several music enthusiasts belonging to the Shanthi Church, Balmatta, formed the BMA at an inaugural meeting in the Balmatta Theological Seminary. By the grace of God and the conscientious efforts of many musicians and music lovers, BMA has grown from strength to strength and now is continuing to serve the church by promoting the musical talents of its members and thereby helping to raise the standard of church music.
Among the many milestones traversed by the BMA, the most prominent are the Golden Jubilee Concert in 1977, the Diamond Jubilee Concert in 1986, the Platinum Jubilee Concert in 2002, the concert to celebrate the 80th anniversary of BMA in 2006 and the concert in commemoration of the sesquicentennial celebrations of CSI Shanthi Cathedral, Balmatta in 2012.
To mark its 90th anniversary, BMA will organise a choral and orchestral concert. Through its choral and orchestral renditions, the members of the BMA thank the Almighty for all the gracious blessings He has showered upon the BMA and pray that He continues to use the BMA as His instrument for His glory in the years to come.
The BMA cordially invites all music lovers of Mangaluru to the choral and orchestral concert organised on Sunday February 12 in the CSI Shanthi Cathedral, Balmatta at 6.00 pm. The concert conducted by the young virtuoso Oscar Weltha, is a soul stirring amalgam of Church music. I D Soans, professor of computer science and engineering, Atria Institute of Technology, Bengaluru, will be the chief guest and will release the souvenir. In addition to the choir, music lovers will be treated to a repertoire of instruments – strings, percussion and wind.
