Our annual flagship event featuring Pancharatna Kritis, individual performances, a Harikatha style special program by Smt. Subhasree Narayanan “Carnatic Music - A Boon to Mankind” and a lecture demonstration by Shri. Sathish Rao to commemorate Smt. D.K. Pattamal’s centenary.
Veena concert by child prodigy Ramana Balachandran. Just 16 years old, his talent is so rich that Akashvani had to bring down the lower age limit for an audition. With so many accolades and awards to his credit, he is indeed a Vidhwan of the highest caliber. We are fortunate to have him perform here in Jacksonville.
In this 16th consecutive year, we celebrate with a full day of music in honor of the Saint Thyagaraja. Starting with the traditional Pancha Ratna Kritis, there will be a medley of individual and group performances, programs by several invited artistes and a grand concert. There will be a sumptuous traditional lunch served as well.
