The Mylapore Fine Arts Club - December Concerts - 2009

One of the popular sabhas of Mylapore area, the Mylapore Fine Arts Club has been holding concerts at the present location since 1959.
Its hall is on the Musiri Subramaniam Salai, still known by the old name Oliver Road for many Mylaporeans and is adjacent to St. Isabels Hospital.
The auditorium is not airconditioned and still has the old asbestos roof and if it rains during the season you will hear the kutcheri of the rain from 'pitter patter' to 'thud thud'.
Yet, this sabha is among the favourites of Mylapore rasikas
