It’s been said before and will be said again, many times over, that Goa is where everyone comes to be happy. Everyone knows the reason for that. The overall atmosphere in Goa is generally a relaxed one. Great food, great nightlife spots, great drinks and great music. The best part is that there is something for everyone. From pop and EDM music that the youth enjoy to even classical music that a more mature crowd would enjoy. And if you’re in Goa today, the STUTI Choral Ensemble performs at a concert at Kala Academy called All Strings Attached: Volume 2.
The Stuti Choral Ensemble
The Stuti Choral Ensemble was created by Fr. Eufemiano Miranda in 2009. Fr. Miranda was the parish priest at St. Inez Church in Panjim then and he set up the choir to bring back choral music into the music community. Along with a versatile group of singers, Fr. Miranda also sings. The Stuti Choral Ensemble consists of around 26 members who sing in 4 voices.
Members of the group come and go as do conductors but Stuti remains consistent in their performances. While they have not performed regularly each year, they have had many noted musicians and singers perform with them at various locations in Goa.
