Sustaining Sampradaya 2011

The Aradhana Committee continues its education series Sustaining Sampradaya, for its fifth year. Although the deadline for applying has passed, you can still view the announcement for applications.

This year, we once again feature two themed programs:

The Music of Dance

The 34th Cleveland Thyagaraja Festival is dedicated to the memory of the great Vazhuvoor Sri B. Ramaiah Pillai, 2011 being his centenary year. The Aradhana Committee and Smt. Suguna Varadachari, along with other vidwans and vidushis, have put together a special concert that will feature music as well as live dance interpretation by various dancers.

The music lessons for this program are available for download.

Gems from Karnataka

Karnataka has an exhalted position in the history of Carnatic music, and is the birthplace of not only Purandara Dasa the Pitamaha of Carnatic music, but also of many other great composers through the years. The Aradhana Committee, with several senior musicians, has put together a concert around their compositions.
