Season starts after the deluge in Chennai

Though there were initial dilemma among artistes and organisations to go with the 'season' or not, the 'season' has finally begun.

Many venues were affected by the floods. Chettinad Vidyashram school, where Jaya TV Margazhi Utsavam takes place resumed after the water receded. Concerts are rescheduled.

Mylapore was not much affected and so Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan continued their concert series adding a prayer session for those affected by the floods before their evening concert every day after the deluge.

Narada Gana Sabha cancelled their Pre-music season series till Dec. 7 and resumed for four days from Dec. 8 to 11. The sabha's regular season has begun yesterday.

Chennai Cultural Academy had indefinitely postponed its festival as the venue is still flooded.

With Thyaga Brahma Gana Sabha, Mylapore Fine Arts Club, Nada Inbam, Narada Gana Sabha and Sri Parthasarathy Swami Sabha inaugurating their festivals, the season is on. But a lot of rescheduling, cancellations change in accompanists keep the organisers on toes.
