Under the grant-in-aid provided by Ministry of Culture, Govt. of India, young musician of Mysuru Sangeetha Vidushi Vyshnavi Datta will present a unique music feature based on the compositions of Veena Shivaramayya. It will be held on Dec.18 at Sri Vasudevacharya Bhavan (Sri Nadabrahma Sangeetha Sabha) on JLB Road in city at 6 pm.
Musician (USA) Dr. S. Sridhara will inaugurate the programme. K.S. Datta, Bharathi Datta and C.V. Nagaraj will be the chief guest. Bharatanatyam artiste Dr. Radhika Nandakumar will be the guest of honour. Musician Dr. R.S. Nandakumar will preside.
Shivaramayya was a court musician during the times of Nalwadi Krishnaraja Wadiyar and he was one of the prominent stalwart musicians amongst the Mysore Composers. It may be noted here that this feature is the rare one which portrays an entire event based on one music composer.
On this occasion, Brahmavidya and Urs Community will give a gift of money towards the expenses for Education Tour by the Gadi Chowka Government School students. Vyshanavi will also participate in this gift of money by saving from the expenses on the music feature.
R. Pavan, who will host the next day’s Bharatanatyam feature, will also contribute towards this on behalf of his dance troupes.
