About the program:
Twin-Cities Aradhana has been a fixture of the Communities' calendar
since 1995. Modeled after the tradition of Thyagaraja Aradhana,
performed annually in Thiruvayyar, India, Aradhana-2010's main purpose
is to celebrate the works of and pay tributes to, Purandaradasa
(considered the father of Carnatic music), the trinity of Carnatic
music (Saint Thyagaraja, Muthuswamy Dikshitar and Shyama Shastri) and
other great composers by rendering their select compositions. This
is one of the rare opportunities to see and hear Carnatic music as a
chorus presentation. (Carnatic music is almost always performed solo.).
