Nadopasana Trust, Chennai pays tribute to its founder R. Srinivasan

A well-known, yet simple, R. Srinivasan, founder-secretary of Nadopasana in Chennai passed away on Jan. 26, this year. A sabha that was started in 1968 with humble intention of promoting good music stood out in the crowd of large number of sabhas in the city.

The trust began with an informal concert by Thriuvengadu Jayaraman in July 1968 at Srinivasan's home in Adyar. The sabha is remembered for hosting D.K. Jayaraman's first solo concert at the time when he was singing only along with his musician sister D.K. Pattammal.

The Trust pays tribute to Srinivasan on Feb. 7, 2016 at 5 p.m. at Raga Sudha Hall in Mylapore, Chennai. This will be followed by felicitations to Sanjay Subrahmanyan, Sangita Kalanidhi awardee by the Music Academy this year. Nadopasana has been traditionally honouring the Sangita Kalanidhi Awardees every year, though the sabha has not been conferring any award on artistes.

Following the felicitations, Sanjay will present a concert accompanied by Nagai Muralidharan on the violin and Srimushnam Rajarao on the mridangam. The concert is free and open to all.
