Sangeetham 2017

Abhinay Fine Arts is excited to bring back the premier community music event " Sangeetham " on April 23, 2017 at Redmond High School. Given the phenomenal success of the Seattle Carnatic Choir in 2016 we will yet again present a grand Carnatic Choir with participants of all age groups and all levels of training. This year we are especially fortunate that renowned musician and musicologist Sri Neyveli Santhangopalan will personally conduct a practice session on April 4th This will be a unique opportunity for all to benefit from his fantastic teaching methods.

We are also fortunate to have Sangeeta Kalanidhi Padma Bhushan Smt. Sudha Raghunathan as our chief guest this year. The days events will conclude with a grand vocal concert by Smt Sudha Raghunathan in support of the VEDA temple.

Registration will begin for Sangeetham on 2/13/17. We urge choir participants to register ASAP since practice sessions will begin very shortly.

Looking forward to a robust participation from all,
