#1 Sustaining Interest in Carnatic Music

The Ramotsava Programs has given raise to some thinking on this subject.

Rajarajeshwari Nagar Cultural association has arranged 9 days festival at Munivenkatappa Open air auditorium.The organisers put up an excellent Pandal spending a good amount of money.Besides morning Bhajans evening two Music concerts - Junior one 05:30-06:30 and a Senior one 06:30-09:30 PM.
The attendance for the junior Program invariably consisted of friends and relatives of the performer.Once the Junior Concert is finished,this group promptly leaves the scene.
A new set of people slowly trickle in and the concert starts at around 07:00 PM .
Though it can easily accommodate around 400-500 attendance is only 100-150.
Even in this crowd people start trickling out from 08:00 PM
