Are the 7pm concerts (senior performers) also free?

Editor said...

Yes, all the concerts are open to rasikas. And free. But you need to be early at the venue for the seniors' concerts as the auditorium gets houseful for those concerts.

Sudha Raghunathan, OS Arun, Charulatha Isai Payanam, T.M. Krishna will be full. Go at least 20 minutes before with a book or ipod and get a seat. Other concerts you can go anytime.

There are no concerts by Anooradha Sriram and Sriram Parsuram this year??

N P K Iyer said...

I want to meet S. Jayarama Sharma .......could you please arrange a meeting with him?

Editor said...

@ NPK Iyer, sorry, we are no organisers. I think you can meet him before / after his performance at the green room.
