Sanjay Subrahmanyan at The Music Academy's inauguration

With The Music Academy inaugurating its annual music conference and concerts yesterday (Dec. 16, 2015), the December season is on in full swing. The inaugural functions generally don't attract many. In particular, The Music Academy insists for an official invite to enter the hall at its inauguration. Many stay away or forced to stay away because of this rule as many rasikas do not have an invite.

Sanjay Subrahmanyan, the Sangita Kalnidhi designate is one, whose presidential speech was much awaited by his fans at the Academy. He did not disappoint them and spoke from well-prepared notes. He traced back the days of his learning music, the inspirations he derived from his gurus, other stalwarts of music and friends. He remembered the YACM, an organisation that supported the young musicians in the 1980s and also his accompanists.

Sanjay will be presiding over the lec-dem sessions from today, Dec. 16, 2015 that will be held at the mini hall in The Music Academy premises in the mornings from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.

Here is the video recording of Sanjay's speech shared by him on his YouTube channel.
