#1 SKB memorial concerts 2018

Post by kamalamba » 12 Aug 2018, 22:22

Dear fellow rasikas

I am about to start the preparations for the coming december concerts. The fifth of this series.

However, a problem is that our favorite location "eAmbalam" in Kalakshetra colony is no longer available, since the school has moved elsewhere.

I would like suggestions in Chennai for "smallish" places that give a chamber concert atmosphere while being able to hold ~100 people and not charging exorbitant amounts (eAmbalam, thanks to the generosity of Sri TV Ramprasadh did not charge us anything).

I am also thinking of artistes.

Suggestions for up-and-coming artistes welcome.

Regards
Mohan

Hello Mohan,

(Sorry I did not get to visit you in UK)

One place comes to mind, but someone else will have to provide the name and organisation. Here are the clues!

It is a garden environment, behind a house in C P Ramaswamy Road, close to Nilgiris and opposite Citibank. I think it was set up by Aishwarya Shankar, her father, and others. It might have been the house of her first guru.

It was inaugurated last year and concerts were held there. There is a need for mosquito repellent (but where, here, isn't there!) but otherwise, the ambience is perfect and it is very central. I don't think that I have any contact number, but I find one I'll send it to you.

There will probably be season concerts there, but perhaps they may have a spare day.

(And here's my first request/recommendation: vocalist K Dharini :D)
