The South Indian Cultural Association (SICA), in association with the Vinjamuri Trust, is organising the annual 3-day Vinjamuri Memorial music concerts from 24th to 26th October, in memory of late Ganakalanidhi Dr. Vinjamuri Varadaraja Iyengar. Today, the second day, Amrutha Venkatesh will present a Carnatic vocal recital. G J Arjun Ganesh on the mridangam and K S Venkata Subramanyam on the violin will provide the music support.

Amrutha Venkatesh trained under veteran vocalist M T Selvanarayana and Charumathi Ramachandran, and has risen to become a popular artiste in a short span of time. She holds a Vidwat Diploma in Music from the Government Of Karnataka, and was also the recipient of the CCRT Scholarship from the Government Of India.

She was awarded the Best Music Award from Hansadhwani, Chennai; Music Academy's Best Vocalist Award (2006); and Krishna Gana Sabha's Voleti Venkateswarulu Memorial Award, to name a few.

Hailing from Guntur district, Varadaraja Iyengar was a musician, musicologist and composer. He belonged to the Sishya Parampara of Saint Thyagaraja. His initial guru was Piratla Sankara Sastry, who belonged to the Veena Kuppaiar School. He thereafter learnt under late Tiger Varadachary of Manambuchavadi Venkata Subramanya Iyer School.

Varadaraja imbided the best of these traditions. He was with AIR Chennai and Hyderabad for a long time, and was mainly instrumental in propagating bhakti music. He also served SICA as its Vice-President till his demise in 1991.

SICA was founded in 1959 by Dewan Bahadur Aramuda Iyengar, the Finance Minister of Hyderabad's Nizam and a great patron of Carnatic music. The association has since organised more than 1,000 concerts. It has provided a basic platform for upcoming artistes like U P Raju and Nagamani, Mandolin Srinivas and the Malladi Brothers. It conducts workshops, felicitates artistes, and provides both moral and financial support to upcoming artistes. Dr S Chakravarthy, IAS, former Chief Secretary to the Govt. Of AP, is the current President of the association, and R Chakrapani is the General Secretary.

The entry to the concert is by invitations for members - members of the general public need to buy donor passes of Rs. 25 or Rs. 50 per head. Please contact R Chakrapani at 2742-5374/98491-24675 or V Ramachandran at 92461-61420 for further details
