Our fundraising campaign has stalled for some reason, stuck at 36% of the goal for this year. If you have contributed already, please take a moment to hint, nudge, cajole, beseech your friends pitch in. It takes a village to move a mountain, and its about time we had all hands on deck!
If you have been to one of our concerts before, you might have noticed the friendly interplay and camaraderie between the performing artistes. Most of the time, the main vocalist or instrumentalist is from out of town and meets the accompanying artistes right before the performance. It is intriguing to know that, typically, they meet each other for the first time, exchange notes for a few minutes, and sit down to give a performance that makes you feel like they have been performing together for ages. Look closer, and you will see an actual full-on conversation going on between the artistes - a little smile here, a little appreciation there, a subtle nod of agreement, a smile when thrown a challenge, the sly look of determination to meet the challenge, and the enjoyment when it all comes together to hit a nadir of perfection!
So here is an experiment. Our next concert features artistes with a rather unique combination of skills. Kamalakiran, who is actually slated to perform with his violin at the concert, is also a vocalist and a mrigangist. Vignesh, who has spun his magic for us with his mridangam before, is also a vocalist. So what if we make them switch roles, and step on each others' musical toes, literally? Bring your kids and join us for an interactive session on the day of the concert where they will do exactly that, in addition to sharing nuggets from their musical journey.
Mark your calendars for the concert on Sunday, Feb 22nd, and look forward to an evening of sublime music.
