Every year, societies from colleges across the campus compete neck to neck and put up spectacular performances during the fest season. This year too, saw certain teams shine a little brighter than the rest. We bring you a series with college societies that put their heart and soul into their respective fields and took home the top prizes at various cultural fests.

The best college society in each category was selected by creating a tally of the top 3 positions at competitive events held during various cultural fests of this season. Whenever a society won the first prize they were awarded 3 points, for the second position they received 2 points and for the third position, 1 point was added to their tally.

For the Western Music category, Western Music Society of LSR scored the maximum points in the tally. Western Music Society of LSR’s 14 points were followed by Zephyr (Kamala Nehru College) that scored 12 points. Musoc (Kirori Mal College) bagged third spot scoring 10 points.

The Western Music Society of LSR

The society has been a consistent performer in the Western Music category. This year, their production was widely appreciated and applauded wherein they covered a Jazz Gospel number called ‘Come Unto Me’ by Take 6 and their own arrangement of Janelle Monae’s  ‘Electric Lady’.

Satwiki Adla, the President of WMS said, “The secret to our success is our dedication. We practice everyday diligently for 4-6 after college hours. Another strength of our society is also the understanding and love that we share for one another and the music that we make which binds us all together into a close-knit family. The ability to be able to work on our strengths while pointing out our weaknesses is something we strive to achieve at LSR WMS .”
