The Trustees of the Deccan Heritage Foundation held an afternoon of concerts followed by a gala dinner to honour one of our Trustees, George Michell who celebrated his 70th birthday in December 2014.
The festival was held at the newly restored Reis Magos Fort, Goa on 13th December 2014 and was attended by guests of the Trustees as well as a number of honourable guests including the Deputy Chief Minister of Goa, Mr Francis De Souza, the Chair of Goa Tourism Development Corp, Mr Nilesh Cabral and Director of Tourism for Goa, Mr Ameya Abhyankar.
The musical programme was performed by talented local student musicians. This was followed by a champagne reception and buffet dinner held in the beautiful courtyard of the Reis Magos Fort. Trustees and guests mingled in the pleasant surroundings and the event was also filmed to capture the highlights of the event.
None of this would have been possible without the support and participation of our partner organisations for the Festival. We're very proud to be working with them to celebrate Goa's rich musical heritage.
