The 1st January 2011 marked the successful completion of 1 Year by Powai Fine Arts, and Powai Fine Arts Celebrated the event in a grand style with a Carnatic Vocal Concert held at IBS Auditorium by Ms. Roopa Mahadevan ( USA) (Recipient of Fulbright award)
Ms. Roopa Mahadevan ( USA) was accompanied on Violin by V.Ramachandran, on Mrudangam by Rajesh Srinivasan and Morsing by R.Venkatesh and the venue was the beautiful IBS Auditorium, Second Floor, opposite Hiranandani Hospital, Powai. The chief guest was Sri. Ganesh Kumar, Maharashtra Abhang Ratna and President, Fine Arts Society, Chembur. My only grudge to Organizers is to please start the concert on time.
Powai Fine Arts has been bringing some impressive performances and this was their 4th event in Powai. The first concert was held at IIT Auditorium, where Ramnath and Gopinath, known popularly as Iyer brothers, disciples of Veena Maestro R Pichumani performed. There were other concerts which followed where Bharathi Ramasubban performed, she took training in music from her mother Sankari Ramasubban and from her grandmother Sharada Krishnan, direct disciple of Muthiah Bhagavathar. The 4th concert was a violin concert by Powai based Vioin Maestra Sunita Bhuyan.
