Champions – North-West Zone

(The North-West Zone represented the parishes of St. Anne, St. Vincent de Paul and a part of St. Andrew.)

The  Poster Theme  Unity through Talent  for the 59th St. Andrew’s All-Bandra Zonal Contest was aptly chosen; the cover page of the Brochure featured the winning entry  of our very own Sasha D’Silva of Sherly Community.

Diligent and strenuous hours of  practice in every category brought many a win to St. Anne’s ;  the children of our parish in particular need to be commended for their achievements.  The Saldanha sisters – Marise & Merrill enthralled the audience with their piano performance while Joanna Pinto’s  melodious rendition of  “My Mother is my Metronome”  was much applauded.   Chantel D’Souza was ever so cute with “Catch a Falling Star”.  It was fantastic to discover new talent in a beautiful salsa by Kimberley  Pereira  and Aaron D’Silva. Calvin Vaz accompanied the Choir.

The eccentric performance by James Miranda as Einestein , H.G.Wells played by Melody Menezes-Vaz and the British-accented Mrs. Hudson played by Michele Lawrence added to the cast of the North-West play “ Sherlock Holmes and the Portal of Time“.  The play was directed Daniel D’Souza.

The much awaited plays on 6th & 7th September brought the curtains down on yet another year of the Zonals.  The North West Zone picked up a good number of trophies and emerged overall champions for 2014!  Heartiest Congratulations to all our winners and performers. Thank you for a splendid month of excitement and entertainment!
