After the first day featuring a range of dance competitions along with the Bollywood night, the second and final day at Crescendo – the Annual cultural fest of Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies (SSCBS) ended with a bang.

Indian Music (Solo) – Shreya Adhikari from Sri Venkateswara College was adjudged the best singer.
The day progressed with various informal events like Rangoli making and the English Sitcom Quiz. To add to the cheer and put a befitting end to the high-energy fest, Sunburn performed for the rest of the evening. Post a few security glitches of the previous day, the security was tightened and entry was strictly regulated to prevent the situation from getting out of control. Inside the main stadium, Sunburn put up it’s set up, complete with LCDs, LEDs and spotlights to give the entire fest the feel of an authentic concert. The concert started on schedule and witnessed sunburn’s signature electric music. The invigorated reception it received sealed it as a success.
An elated and tired Saumya Shoor, one of the crescendo organisers had the following to say, “The kind of response we have gotten is truly is heartening. We had some high expectations to match this time. And with the amount of work we put in, we are glad that the event was received so well.”
