Thriloka and the Contemporary Chamber Orchestra (conducted by Manilal Weerakoon) performed at Thrilogy on Friday the 12th of June at the Bishop’s Auditorium. I don’t have time to write a review and will have to make do with several photographs I took.
But let me just say that only Thriloka themselves would be able to top that brilliant performance. To be objective, the orchestra was out of tune in many places and with the exception of the conductor, their lack of enthusiasm was palpable. And there were some problems with the sound equipment which resulted in occassional feedback from the instruments.
However, it is undeniable that Thriloka currently represents the best of Sri Lankan talent and I’m extremely proud of how they are constantly pushing the limits and how there is definite progression every time they take the stage.
Like so many people said that night, thank you Thriloka, for that experience.
