December Music Season 2020 - a mix of virtual and open-air venue concerts

Every year, just around Navaratri, many sabhas begin publishing the schedule of December concerts. We, at chennidecemberseason.com keep a tab on every organiser and their announcement of concert schedules. 

But it is different this year.

Music concerts in halls, auditoriums and even the private concerts are cancelled. However, many have taken the concerts to online platforms like YouTube and Facebook Live. 

Artistes and rasikas were hoping for the situation to get better until many organisations declared that the December Season concerts would be mostly digital. During late August, The Music Academy, Madras also announced its concert schedule for December as 'Digital' concerts.

In late September, Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, which starts the annual music concerts in November every year, announced that the concerts will be held in the school campus managed by Bhavan in Kilpauk. 

Welcome December Season 2020! After all, music in any form enthrals the resikas.

Season's concerts and lecdems - online channels

The Music season offers so many concerts, lec-dems and many other events that often the timings overlap and you are left to choose only one among the lot. However, some online channels offer live webcast and the videos are available online even after the 'season'.

A welcome initiative by some of the sabhas including The Music Academy to put up concerts and lec-dems online. Some more sabhas update their online channels in the due course.

Here are a few links you can go to and enjoy the Music Season all over!

Arkay Convention Centre in Mylapore is a popular venue for many organisations to host music concerts and talks. The in-house sabha Madhuradhwani organises exclusive monthly concerts, single-mike concerts and an anniversary concert series every year. It is also among the favourite venues for many rasikas. Almost all the concerts that happen at this venue are webcast on their YouTube channel -  https://www.youtube.com/user/arkay1955/videos

Parivadini is another channel that does webcast for sabhas. They also organise concerts under their own banner. Many of the concerts that happen at Raga Sudha Hall in Mylapore are webcast by Parivadini here - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCI_ZZUah1img9mg8gNdaCjQ/videos

Narada Gana Sabha's concerts held at its Mini Hall during its Pre-Music festival and during the season are being uploaded to their YouTube Channel. Many are in queue to be updated. The channel is here - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCS8P7Qv0Ki2ZT9Z26aTUpZw/videos

The Music Academy has uploaded the lecture demonstrations held during the 'season' on its YouTube Channel. They were online on day-to-day basis. They are available on the channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKmE9i2iW0KaqgSxVFYmZUw/videos

Enjoy watching the concerts and lec-dems all over again!

Relive the 'Music Season' moments

It is natural that the music lovers think and reminisce about their attending concerts during the 'season'. Many times they miss a couple of events as all the concerts, lec-dems, discourses, dance events overlap and the rasikas have to choose where they want to be amidst many other favourite concerts. Newspaper reports can bridge this gap. But there aren't many.

Here are two such print publications that bring out the flavour of the season.

One is the 'Season's daily' brought out by Kutcheribuzz.com. Beginning Dec. 15 the daily is distributed in the major sabhas in the evenings till Jan. 1, every year. The free newspaper carries reports on the music and dance events held during the 'season'.

The other is an exclusive newsletter from Sri Parthasarathy Swami Sabha that comes out at periodical intervals during the festival. This publication carries reports, photos of concerts held at the sabha during the season.

The digital versions of both publications are available on their websites.

Check out Kutcheri Buzz's Season's Daily at - http://www.kutcheribuzz.com/kbdaily-2019

Sri Parthasarathy Swami Sabhas's newsletter Sangeeth Sarathy is available at - https://parthasarathyswamisabha.com/2019/12/28/sangeeth-sarathy-issues-isai-vizha-2019-2020/

We will soon consolidate and post the video / webcast links of concerts, lec-dems and other events. Watch out for it.
