Young musicians at the mini halls

On Dec. 28, young Trichur Brothers had a houseful concert at the mini hall in Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Mylapore. The brothers invited the young listeners to occupy the floor space in the front so that the elderly get to have their seats. Most young people did move to the front, yet many were seen standing. They stood at the doors of the A/C hall that were left open after some time.

Spilling over to the corridors, the listeners were sitting on the benches and some were standing for the entire two-hour concert. The aisles too had people sitting on the floor.

The audiences were treated with special songs on Lord Siva since it was the Arudra Darsanam day.

Bhavan's mini hall is a much sought after concert hall throughout the year. Though the seating capacity is about 150, there are a few 'extra' chairs on demand. And the audio control room has some space for a few more chairs.

But can something be done to keep the A/C hall doors closed and still accommodate the rasikas, for the open doors let the traffic noise and the mosquitoes inside the hall?
