After our auditions taking place at the end of August, Dhamakapella has gained a whopping EIGHT NEW MEMBERS for this school year! Our new Dhamakans come from all across the country and even different grade levels. Congratulations to Wayne Hou (Junior, Tenor 2), Suga Saravanan (Sophomore, Alto 2), Tara Dickinson (Soprano), Sahana Kannan (Freshman, Alto 1), Vivek Kapur (Freshman, Beatboxer), Anusha Mudigonda (Freshman, Alto 2), Oliver Shumacher (Freshman, Bass), and Jessica Suratkal (Freshman, Alto 1) for becoming new members of the Dhamaka family! Returning again this school year are juniors Komal Keerthy, Kevin Mallady, and Aashna Shah; and sophomores Divyam Agrawal, Eric Chang, Pavani Nukala and Kasey Pukys.
We already had our first performance this semester at the Farm Harvest Festival on September 14, and will additionally be performing at the Inamori Ethics Prize Event (Sept. 19) and Night Market Cleveland (Sept. 27) this month.
October has even more Dhamakapella events and performance in store. We are so excited to share these experiences with our “dhamazing” newbies!
