Musical morning at Nageswara Rao Park, Mylapore

Vani Vidyalaya, K K Nagar student presents Sunday Kutcheri in the Park

Nature and music lovers had a rapturous and enjoyable musical morning on Sunday (4th June 2006) at the Nageswara Park in Luz, Mylapore.

This time, in addition to the "dawn chorus" with which birds greet the people every new day, they had the sweet Carnatic vocal performance of Master V Shreyas to experience and applaud.

Just after the break of dawn, one could hear a heart rendering vocal performance by a 13-year-old boy. It seemed a perfect setting amidst falling leaves and curious birds, humming around the park. With overnight drizzle, the cool and cloudy early morning weather proved to be an ideal setting for the young boy to showcase his talent in front of 100 plus music connoisseurs.

In the fifth of the ‘Sundaram Finance Sunday Kutcheri in the Park’ series, Shreyas, an eighth standard student of Vani Vidyalaya, K K Nagar, presented an outstanding vocal performance for an hour this morning at the Nageswara Rao Park in Mylapore.

He was accompanied by R Bharathi on the violin and R Sriram on the mridangam. Shreyas is learning vocal music from P P B Srirangachari and Murali Parthasarathy. He is also learning violin from Srinivasamurthy.

T T Srinivasaraghavan, Managing Director, Sundaram Finance Ltd, said, "Master Shreyas’s vocal performance this morning was truly outstanding. Our idea, when we started this Sunday Kutcheri concept in February this year, was intended to promote budding youngsters to showcase their talent and provide opportunities to kids under 15 to perform in an open-air, ‘no mike-no speaker’ environment."

" From the performances we have seen in the last few months and the outstanding response from the community, that can be seen from the large number of music connoisseurs who have gathered here to witness and applaud the young, budding artistes, I think the ‘Sundaram Finance Sunday Kutcheri in the Park’ has kicked off in right earnest."
