Harmonizing Hearts: Behind the Scenes of 'Subaho Smayono' – Where Music and Dedication Converge.
Embark on a captivating musical odyssey, where 235 voices blend seamlessly in perfect harmony, singing praises in many languages. Welcome to ‘Subaho Smayono,’ a choral concert set to grace the stage on 29th October 2023, a unique celebration of faith, culture, and the unity brought by music.
Translated from Syriac, ‘Subaho Smayono’ signifies ‘Heavenly Glory,’ encapsulating the essence of this extraordinary musical event. This concert features 235 voices from the talented ensemble ‘Srope Kadheshe,’ the Diocesan Choir of the Madras Diocese of the Malankara Orthodox Church, accompanied by a vibrant 30-member Orchestra, merging in symphonic unison to offer praises in diverse languages. 
Srope Kadheshe (a Syriac phrase meaning Voice of Angels), formally inaugurated in June 2010, is a collective representing the finest choirs from our churches across the city of Chennai. This combined choir is the brainchild, dream and vision of His Grace Dr. Yuhanon Mar Diascoros, former Bishop of the Madras Diocese. Since its inception in 2010, the choir has performed in various programs and events and has been widely appreciated. The choir is once again poised to captivate hearts and celebrate the fusion of faith and culture. During one of the practice sessions, the Metropolitan of our Madras Diocese, His Grace Geevarghese Mar Philexinos confessed that he experienced goosebumps while listening to the songs.
As a choir member and a proud part of ‘Srope Kadheshe,’ carrying the rich musical traditions of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Churches, I am exhilarated to share my journey within this kaleidoscope of melodies. Together, we are set to mesmerize the audience with a repertoire spanning Christian hymns in Malayalam, Greek, Tamil, and English.
