Honourable Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi

“Music is a powerful language that connects us all, irrespective of where we come
from. I’m delighted to hear about the World Music Conference, an ideal opportunity, I
feel, to applaud the talents in our diverse communities but also a chance to
remember the departed iconic music legends whose legendary contributions shall
forever remain in memory.

Rt Hon Theresa May MP, British Prime Minister

It is events such as these that promote peace, harmony, social cohesion as well as
provide an opportunity for people from all backgrounds to enjoy each other’s
cultures and ways of life. I send my best wishes for the inaugural World Music
Conference.”

Rt Hon Justine Greening MP, Secretary of State for Education & Minister for Women & Equalities

It’s great to see that one of the main aims of the inaugural World Music Conference is Education and British Values. We are hugely proud of the British Education system which is recognised for its high quality all over the world. Music and Education are a great combination which
provides an ideal platform for a learning experience which can not only benefit individuals, but communities too.

Well done to all those behind the success of the British Carnatic Choir on the first milestone. May this concept continue to flourish and enrich further the understanding and awareness of our multicultural, diverse society. It is through such kinds of music that we can promote unity, peace and togetherness.”

The government’s vision is to enable children from all backgrounds and every part of England to have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument; to make music with others; to learn to sing and to have the opportunity to progress. I am sure the Carnatic Choir will be making a welcome contribution to children’s enjoyment of music in your area.
