Mornings at the Academy

During the season, the Music Academy gets busy from 8 a.m.
The vehicles that bring in the musicians, students with accessories like the tambura, violin, mridangam are always more than the capacity of the car parks inside the campus.
They overflow to the by-lanes close to the Academy, since the vehicles are not directed to St. Ebba's school where, parking in the evening is arranged for by the Academy.
But what flows inside the big  and the small auditoriums is just music.
While the mini hall accommodates talks and demos, the main hall is for the music of the veterans. You can listen to the greats of today's Carnatic music world. It is the time to soak in the music with an authority of the age-old traditions.

The first of the morning sessions at the main hall began with the nadaswaram recital of the couple Sheik Mahaboob Subhani and Kalisha Bi Mahaboob on Dec. 16, 2011.
These concerts are open to all and are not ticketed.
