#1 Concert Schedules in Chennai - That never get reported on that day in The Hindu

Post by rajeshnat » 20 Dec 2016, 11:28

While most of us take THe hindu engagement as the basis of schedule and go to concerts in chennai. Certainly Kannan's diary acts as a great information . But some sabhas donot advertise in any medium the schedule . At times few artists dole out money and put up an ad in the hindu, but they are few .

Some times the sabhas put at the beginning the schedule in page 4 the entire series, but it is just too cumbersome to remember. Some never put it and there are commercial reasons for the same - at times it just gets mentioned in mambalam times , velachery times etc but information does not reach rasikas on time . Some like nanganallur sabhas put in the blackboard , once when I went 7 years back to sangeetha swaminathan and told the sabha as to why he is not advertising.The sabha patron assumed that I walk in nanganallur and he told you can see the vinyl poster or sabha blackboard . The same happens with rathna gireeshwarar temple concerts in besant nagar.

I am opening this topic for those to post the sabha schedules - those WHO DO FOLLOW UP WITH a 4 liner engagement notice on that day IN THE HINDU need not post the schedule . This thread is only for those who are not following up in The Hindu on a daily basis.

For a start I am especially looking for chromepet, tambaram and Pammal. Also that OMR -rasikapriya ,ambattur and korattur if u have it post it.I put up pozhichalur because I came to know.Those who know please post the sabha schedules . For heavens sake dont ask us to join Facebook. DONOT Clutter this thread with schedules which gets reported in The Hindu.

For many years I did not know that there is a Venugopalaswami temple also in gopalapuram , chennai . I was only thinking venugopalaswami is only in malleswaram, bengaluru as i had heard one recording. There are some concerts that were held a week back or so in gopalapuram and I am not sureif there are more concerts lined up in gopalapuram temple .I was completely not aware of this venugopalaswami concert in chennai and they in the past decade and half have never been reported in The Hindu. Those who know the schedule of these venues before hand please share it in this thread . Venues like rathanagireeshwarar temple , besant nagar , pozhichalur , gopalapuram -Venugopalaswami, few temples in nanganallur do not post in the Hindu at all - music is of quite a high quality, but we just donot know the schedule at all . Now with navarathri on the way those who know concert schedules in chennai that are not going to come up in the hindu please do post in this thread .

The navarathri festival is on sringeri temple in T Nagar. I attended a concert yesterday.
09/29 - bharathi ramasubban & party
09/30 - maharajapuram srinivasan & party
10/01 - vijayalakshmy subramaniam & party

The above concerts starts at 06:30 PM. The vinyl boards they are posting not as one big board. I was assuming they have also cut but it is still on as before .

I do know there is a new sabha and hall come up this year . It is APL School in Thoraipakkam run by real estate Ramaniyam (a real great place I should say for the IT crowd who have very poor accesss that too on a week day to reach Mylapore or T Nagar is almost impossible). I came to know of few concerts happening here . May I know the schedule of this season concerts here please.

On April 25,2018, today I saw some thing spectacular in The Hindu

There is a sabha by name North Madras Fine Arts Academy. They have put in the engagement column their concert of TMK-Hemalatha-Kallidakurichi sivakumar-Gurupraasad .This concert is going to be held in a school by Name Sayee Vidyalalaya in a place by name Kodungaiyur. Kodungaiyur is far more north than perambur and this place is closer to madhavaram and manali. While I used to feel cities like bangalore are having more spread of sabhas with more new generation sabhas, chennai is way too hanging with its 100 year glory that too with excess spread in mambalam and mylapore. Also non season spread is just restricted mainly to Ragasudha and Arkay

Kudos to North Madras Fine Arts Academy and i hope they continue to get bigger and bigger. We need more next gen sabhas. It would be nice they hold concerts in non season times , i am not sure if more concerts are planned .Reviews of concerts being held can be put in the kutcheri thread (not here).

Check this location of this kodungaiyur sabha.

In yesterday june 04 paper , I saw the writeup in The Hindu that said
Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan , Mylapore is having a series titled "Carnatic Legends Music Series" and here is the schedule of all the legends , each concert starts at 06:30 PM .
June 05, Tues- A Kanyakumari (violin)
June 06 ,Wed- Trichur Ramachandran
June 07 ,Thurs- Bombay Sisters

June 11 ,Mon- TV gopalakrishnan
June 12, Tue - TN Seshagopalan
June 13, Wed - AKC Natarajan(clarionet)
June 14, Thurs - Vikku vinayakaram (chatur ghatam)
June 15, Fri - TV Shankaranarayanan

It is so nice for BVB to honor these greats . Also personally there is a small change which is significant. There is more concert spread that is happening over the month of May and June and for me in the last month May itself I have attended about 8 in madras . That is wonderful chennai is getting back its madras glory.How to reach at 06 30 in mylapore on a week day after work with traffic, chennai has permanently lost its madras glory.
Great job BVB team, I can say for sure many of these veterans can sing/play far more than 08:30 PM IST.
