Student Presenters

We have been delighted to also feature presentations by NAACHO, Princeton University’s premier South Asian dance company. Learn more about NAACHO here.We have often been joined by Princeton Swara, the university’s classical singing and music ensemble. PU Swara features student presenters—some well-versed in Hindustani and Carnatic musical styles, others exploring a newfound love of these classical Indian music forms—raising their voices in a spirit of devotion. Connect with PU Swara here.

In addition, we are grateful for a number of individual student presenters who have shared their talents, reflections, and hearts with us at Diwali at the Chapel over the years.
