WALTHAM, MA—LearnQuest Academy of Music, a non-profit institution devoted to providing formal instruction in Indian classical and light music, is getting ready for its annual music festival on March 25-27, 2016 at Regis College in Weston, MA.
Shashank Nene will chair LearnQuest’s 2016 music conference and festival. An veteran of more than 25 years of the Information Technology industry, Nene has held senior leadership positions in large software multinationals in the US, Europe, Asia and Africa. He lives in the Boston area and has been in Massachusetts for the past 18 years.
“Shashank will be responsible for putting together various committees and subcommittees of volunteers for the event,” said Pradeep Shukla, president of Waltham, MA-based LearnQuest Academy of Music. “He and his team members will make sure that everything is done in a timely fashion as it has always been done.”
Shukla declined to disclose names of the artists who will perform during the 2016 festival, but said “the festival will have a great line up of top artists.” He said LearnQuest will present 12 items, including a Kathak dance during the three-day annual music festival.
LearnQuest has assembled a team of 20 volunteers for the upcoming music festival and conference.
“Our team of volunteers consists of music lovers from all walks of life, who work hard to put together a stellar collection of performances from world-renowned artistes, that thrill and move the audience. For us this is a labor of love – the love of good music,” said Nene. “As, each year, we strive to exceed the benchmarks set in the previous year, this 3-day Music Festival has become a ‘must see, must attend’ event for an ever-growing audience of music lovers.”
