There are a few music fests on the fringe that also make the Season in Chennai.
For some years now, violinist V V S Murari has been curating a fest which features young talent from the West who fly into Chennai and perform alongside some senior and wellknown artistes of Chennai.
This Season, Murari's VVS Foundation and Samma Arts LLC, USA is curating 'Naadhaarpanam' which will be held at Sri Kapaleeswarar Temple in Mylapore. The mantapam here is used by musicians and dancers who like the temple vibes to float into their recitals.
Says Murari, "The aim is setting up a platform for the young to outdo themselves by sharing the stage with senior musicians and this is a great opportunity indeed. We are very thankfull to all senior vidwans from India who readily agreed to perform for Naadhaarpanam amidst their extremely busy music season."
The concerts, two every evening from 4.30 p.m. from Dec.25 to 29.
