California student presents Park concert
CHENNAI, August 27: Thirteen-year-old Arjun Subramanian, a class VIII student of Harker Middle School in San Jose, California, came all the way from the U.S. to present a lively Kutcheri on August 5 morning at 6:30 a.m. at the chess square of the Nageswara Rao Park in Mylapore as part of the monthly Sunday Kutcheri in the Park organised by Sundaram Finance.

Arjun was accompanied by Tippirajapuram Hari (a student of Umalaypuram Shri Mali), on the Mridangam, and by Sriram Sridhar (a student of Lalgudi G.J.R. Krishnan), on the Violin.

Arjun’s presentation that morning included compositions such as Gajavadhana (Sriranjani), Sarasasamadana (Kapinarayani), Vellai Thamarai (Abheri), Sivananda Kamavardhani (Panthuvarali), Brova Baramma (Bahudari), Pahi Parvatha Nandini (Arabhi) and Padame Thunai (Valaji).

Sundaram Finance has been organising Sunday Kutcheri in the Park on the first Sunday of every month between 6:30 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. since February 2006. The idea behind the Sunday Kutcheri in the Park is to promote young musical talent aged below 15 years, help them shed their inhibitions, and give them the confidence to move up to the next level. Over 500 children have presented the mikeless Kutcheri at the Nageswara Rao Park.

Sundaram Finance conducts audition to select the artistes. For registration: call 0 94450 34557 or 91 - 44 - 2852 1181.
