 Prize distribution ceremony for Virtual Mozart Piano Competition was held on November 10 at RCEMPA, Kohima.

During the event, Denoto John, who won the competition was awarded with a Casio CDP-S digital piano (sponsored by Casio, the corporate partner of TaFMA) while Ayide Koza, Ati Mero and Avikuo Solo received gift hampers sponsored by Mountain Music Academy, Dimapur for winning the three consolation prizes. The judges for the contest were Bethel Tzuzu, Zingrin Shishak and Visahu Peseyie.
Speaking at the ceremony, advisor to Task Force for Music & Arts (TaFMA), Theja Meru while lauding the winners of the Virtual Mozart Competition stated that ‘there is no miracle in music but only a lot of hard work’.
Meru recalled that the Virtual Mozart which came into existence during the lockdown is something they want to continue in the future, at the regional level and hopefully a national one soon. Placing on record that the winner’s prize was sponsored by Casio, he expressed gratitude for the support they have given for music in Nagaland.
To the winners, the advisor exuded confidence that their winning will be an inspiration for many more young talents to win prizes and bring laurels to Nagaland. “I want to see some of you winning bigger championships. It is high time that our young boys and girls shine in Asia, Europe, all across the world and that is not exaggeration but we have the talent. TaFMA is proud of you, keep up the good work”, he said.
Also echoing the Chief Minister’s dream to make Nagaland a centre of music, he said that it definitely includes ‘performing well’ but most importantly, to be able to earn a livelihood and make a career out of it. Meru informed that from April till October this year, TaFMA has organised more than 20 events online.
In his short address, former president of Kohima Chamber of Commerce and Industries (KCCI), Chris Kire said “it is very encouraging to see TaFMA taking this initiative, giving platform to young talents, and driving the youth to a positive direction.” 
Terming it as a ‘big achievement’ in the state, he commended TaFMA for taking the extra mile especially in the field of music to showcase the talents to the world.
“TaFMA has been able to place the talent we have in the national as well as international roadmap. I congratulate all the winners, and wish them all the best”, he added.  
Earlier, project director TaFMA, Hovithal Sothu chaired the event.
