“A Rainbow of Cultures” Horizon Lanka Mega Concert – 2017

“A Rainbow of Cultures” Horizon Lanka Mega Concert – 2017

Horizon Lanka has been staging several mini-concerts during the year 2017. We organize them quite often mainly because we can get rid of stage phobia when we perform dance items on stage before the villagers. We have staged a few mini-concerts during the year 2017. We ensured the final concert of the year be a mega concert. Mr. Leslie Kariyawasam. Ms. Rekha Wanigasinghe, Miss Pathumi Wanigasinghe, and Miss ——– ——–were the chief guests for the event. We held the “A Rainbow of Cultures” Horizon Lanka Mega Concert – 2017 on December 31, 2017, at Thakshila Public School in Mahawilachchiya. Dialog Axiata provided 4G internet access to Mahawilachchiya to enable us to livestream the event on the internet through Facebook and YouTube.
