A musical tribute to the great composers of Carnatic (South Indian) Classical Music by Twin Cities’ vocalists and instrumentalists.
Saturday, November 11,
Admission:The event is free!
About the program:
Aradhana has been a fixture of the Communities' calendar
since 1995. Modeled after the tradition of Thyagaraja
Aradhana, performed annually in Thiruvayyar, India,
Aradhana'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.).
