Meghalaya’s Shillong Chamber Choir has won the India’s Got Talent Khoj 2. First runner up was Arunachal Pradesh’s Teji Toko, while the second runners up were Bir Khalsa group from Punjab.

About The Shillong Chamber Choir:
The Shillong Chamber Choir was formed in the year 2001 by a group of singers who wished to come together to produce a variety of music, rather than being limited to only one kind. The Shillong Chamber Choir preferred versatility and variety and thus the group of 25 soloists made their first debut performance at Pine Wood Hotel on the 14th and 15th January 2001, with Neil Nongkynrih their maestro and mentor.
Their repertoire now includes pieces from Handel, Bach,
Gershwin, Mozart, Neil Nongkynrih’s compositions, Khasi folk songs and contemporary music.
Some of the members of the Shillong Chamber Choir have won hearts in Switzerland, London, Geneva, Poland and also that of the President and Prime Minister of India.
The choir’s performances have also included concerts at The Rashtrapati Bhavan and a special television programme recorded at the NDTV studios in New Delhi and relayed by the same. The choir also went on a tour of Sri Lanka sponsored by the Indian Council of Cultural Relations.
The choir performed with the world renowned Vienna Chamber Orchestra in Shillong on the 11th of March ’09 and in Kolkatta on the 13th of March ’09. These concerts created musical history for the town of Shillong. It was the first time that a full member western- classical orchestra collaborated with Shillong Artists in Shillong.
This well selected and trained group of now 20 singers will perform at upcoming concerts in India, Europe, Sri Lanka, the USA and China.
