Carnatica and Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan host early season concerts

Two music festivals are hosted early in the season every year.
Bharat Sangeet Utsav hosted by Carnatica  and Bharatiya Sangeeth Utsav by Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan. Identical names create curiosity.
Carnatica's Bharat Sangeet Utsav used to be hosted only in Chennai, but now travels to other towns and cities.
Bhavan's festival has a reason to be hosted in November. This much sought after venue in Mylapore later hostes the festivals of other sabhas. One among them is the long season by Kartik Fine Arts.
After the music festival, Bhavan's auditorium becomes the venue for a dance festival too.
