Lec-dems draw good audience; Academy is recording them for reference

The lectures at the academic sessions of The Music Academy and the lec-dems at Sri Parthasarathy Swami Sabha ( venue: Vidya Bharathi Hall, Mylapore) are drawing a good crowd in the mornings, even on weekdays.

At the Academy, the lecture by D. Balakrishna on 'Rare pallavis of stalwarts' and at Parthasarathy Swami Sabha, the lecture by T N Seshagopalan on 'Gayaki style of Veena' are still being talked about by rasikas and artistes who value such knowledge.

All the lec-dems at the Academy are recorded. 

R T Chari of the Academy team says that all these lectures will be made available at the library in about three months since some technical work will have to be done on the recordings before they are put in the library domain.

Past lectures are also available here.

These will be useful for scholars and academics and artistes - especially for those who could not attend the lec-dems at the Academy.
