Vignana Samithi is organizing a Carnatic vocal concert by Ch Mahalakshmi on 28th June, at the Anand Nagar Community Hall, Khairatabad. She will be accompanied by O Rajashekhar on the violin and Kaka Srinivas Rao on the mridangam.
Mahalakshmi, also a veena artiste, is a disciple of one of the famed Hyderabad Brothers, D Seshachari, for advanced training in Carnatic vocal. She initially learnt veena at Visakhapatnam, and then Carnatic vocal from T V Gopalakrishnan in Chennai. She is a graded artiste of the All-India Radio in both veena and vocals. In addition to her performances in the twin cities, she has also performed in Visakhapatnam, Chennai, Tiruannamalai and Kakinada.
Vignana Samithi, which is in its 31st year of existence, tries to propagate and spread music by organising music concerts every month. It provides a platform for upcoming artistes by giving opportunities, and at the same time gets senior artistes to perform and conduct workshops. Many senior artistes have performed for the organisation, such as Dr. Balamurali Krishna, the Malladi Brothers, the Hyderabad Brothers and Sankaranarayanan.
