There is only a week left before we wrap up our 2015 fundraising campaign, and it has really taken wing now. We have now reached 85% of our goal for the year. We need only 15 donations to get us over the finish line. If you haven't already, please take a minute to donate online or drop a check in the mail.
Last weekend's violin kutcheri by Kamalakiran was extraordinary, the second high-quality concert by a high-schooler this year. After these young artistes perform, the parents are often asked about what they did to foster such talent and creativity. Who can answer this better than Shubha Narayan, a Carnatic music teacher in Los Angeles and a mother of three great young musicians.
"My husband and I have been deeply involved in several musical activities," she says. "Arranging concerts, conducting aradhanas, hosting musicians, and as a teacher, I have been teaching several students at home as well. I think all this exposure to music automatically created the right ambience for my children. I urge all parents to try and create such a musical ambience. You will see how your children spontaneously develop an ear for good music, and eventually it becomes a part of their lives forever." Watch the full video here.
Hamsadhwani's mission is to help create just such an ambience for our community as a whole, and organize concerts that are accessible and convenient virtually in your own backyard. It is the last week of our campaign this year. Please donate today and help us reach our goal!
