Veenotsav2010
Brahma Gana Sabha and Mudhra conducted "Veenotsav'10" on 28th and 29th August at Infosys Hall, Ramakrishna Mission School, Chennai. The fest featuring 32 veena artists took off with Dr.R.S.Jayalakshmi's performance in which she elaborated Kalyani in a classical manner. B.Kannan's dazzling Pallavi in Hemavathi, E.Gayathri's serene play of Sri Parthasarathy ( Sudha dhanyasi)were noteworthy. Kalpagam Swaminathan was astounding and her enthusiasm to play even at this ripe age was really inspirational.Madurai T.N.seshagopalan was at his very best in projecting the Gayaki style on the Veena. The way he sang along while playing the Veena revealed the depth of his knowledge as well as his intense intention to project the voice through the Veena. Many Rakthi ragas found wonderful expression through his introspective play.

The second day's artists included Rukmini Kannan, Tanjore Hemalatha Mani, Maheswari Venkatraman, Shobana, Sangeetha, Bhavani Prasad, Rajalakshmi Tirunarayanan, Bharadwaj, Sujana Vadlamani, V.Balasubramaniam, Nirmala Rajasekhar, G.R.S.Murthy, P.Vasanth Kumar, Punya Srinivas, Revathi Krishna, S.P.Ramh, Jayalakshmi Sekar, Radhika Bhaskar, Jayaraj & Jaysree, Ananthanarayanan, Sankarprakash.All displayed different styles and dimensions to the Veena, thus making it a colourful expression of the great instrument.

A.Natarajan (Vice President, Mudhra) inaugurated the fest and appreciated the efforts of Brahma Gana Sabha and Mudhra in joining together in organising this unique fest.
