Big Day at Music Academy

In many ways you may call Trichur V Ramachadran a cool vidwan.
He goes about his life like any other man on the road.

A few days ago we bumped into him outside Radha Silks in Sannidhi Square, Mylapore. He must have got some shopping done. The Sangita Kalanidhi designate loves being in natty kurtas and he must have bought a few new ones here.

This evening will be his big day. At the sadas at the Music Academy he will be decorated with the birudhu and given the insignia that is awarded to the Sangita Kalanidhi awardee.

Justice V Ramasubramaniam is the chief guest at this 5 p.m. event which is open to all.

Vocalist Tiruchi J. Venkataraman and violinist T. Rukmani will receive the ‘Sangita Kala Acharya’ awards, while the T.T.K. awards will be presented to mridangam vidwan Mullapudi Sriramamurthy and musician-cum-recording expert K.S. Raghunathan.

The award for a musicologist goes to Dr Ritha Rajan.

Prizes will also be given to a host of artistes for excelling during the season here.
