Stage for young NRI artistes . . .

NRI rasikas quietly skipped the season ( though they are now said to be flying in to visit family and friends) and that color was certainly missing at the sabhas.

But a whole community of young artistes have been in the city this past week - some 80-plus young musicians from all parts of the USA have flown in to perform at concerts under the Cleveland Aradhana festival banner.

Auditoriums in R. A. Puram and in Thiruvanmiyur ( south Chennai) were the venues for their concerts.
Said the man behind the Cleveland arts body, V. V. Sundaram,"While we curate the concerts here the young artistes manage their own travel plans and pay for them."

This 'season'-based event has been happening for some years now, giving the USA-based young artistes the window to perform during the season here in Chennai.
