Guwahati, May 18 : Nise Meruno, an upcoming playback singer from Nagaland, recently enthralled music lovers in Guwahati in the company of American opera singer Soprano Christine Matovich.

Some in the audience described it as a confluence of two diverse cultures near the River Brahamputra, which others went ecstatic over the musical symphony.

Nise Meruno and Soprano Christine Matovich, performing together for the first time, complimented each other on the keyboard.

Titled "An Evening of Beautiful Choral and Opera Music", the musical show at the Pragjyoti ITA Centre for Performing Arts, delighted one and all.

It was Matovich's maiden show in Guwahati city.

Formally trained at the California State Fullerton, the Fiesole Conservatory in Italy and the Guildhall School of Music in London, Matovich is a New York-based opera singer and teacher who has performed as a soloist in the U.S, Europe and in many parts of India.

On Sunday, Matovich delighted the audience with her varied repertoire from Caccini's lilting Ave Maria to a soulful aria from the Ballad of Baby Doe by Douglas Moore.

The piece de resistance was "Glitter and Be Gay" from the contemporary Operetta Candide by Leonard Bernstein, in which she demonstrated her versatility and showmanship.

Nise has performed widely mainly in Guwahati for the last three years, both as a soloist at the piano and as a singer.

Having learnt piano and voice modulation in Singapore, Nise started his professional life as a music lecturer at the Delhi School of Music.

Presently, he is working as a pianist with the American Embassy School Choir in Delhi.

Last year, he got an opportunity to sing inside the Parliament House in New Delhi before Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and later at the Supreme Court on Children's Day (November 14).

Asking youngsters to work hard, Nise said: "Everyday, new opportunities are coming in their way. With peace making its presence felt in Nagaland the younger generation has a wonderful opportunity to grow up and make their mark not only in the country but also outside."
