One of the many things that make the University of Delhi happening and enchanting is the performing arts societies and their marvelous annual productions. In the past few months, we saw cut-throat competition across several Delhi University colleges. The hours and hours of practice and hard work were put to test this fest season and from amongst the pool of massive talent, some groups emerged brighter than the others. We attempt to select the best society of the lot. 

The best college society in each category was selected by creating a tally of the top 3 positions that could be won at various events. The society that secured the 1st position was awarded 3 points, the society that secured the 2nd position was awarded 2 points, and finally, the society securing the 3rd position was awarded 1 point.
Eight college fests were referred to while evaluating the top societies tally this fest season. They were: Tarang, LSR; Ullas, KNC; Tempest, Miranda House; Montage, JMC; Mecca, Hindu College; Reverie, Gargi College; Crossroads; Sri Ram College of Commerce, and Nexus, Sri Venkateswara College.

The Top Three
The Western Music Society, Lady Shri Ram College is at the first spot with a total of 16 points. Dhwani of Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies came second with 10 points, followed by Echo of Jesus and Mary College which secured 8 points.

The Winning Society at a glance
In the Western Music Category, Lady Shri Ram College’s Western Music society has been topping the list in the for years in a row. This year too they have maintained their winning streak. Unlike the usual size of 22, there were only 17 singers in the choir this year. However, this didn’t don’t stop the society from nailing every note perfectly.

Sange W. Thungon, President of WMS, told DU Beat, “Leading the team has been incredible this year! The piece this year was so difficult to nail but the girls are so talented that they handled every part with immense grace. The team this year has truly given me a sense of fulfillment from every sphere! As the conductor of the choir, I truly felt nothing less than a magician.”
