As part of its monthly program of music, Kalasagaram is presenting a chamber music concert by young vocalist master J S Sriram, on 17th January. Sriram will be accompanied by O Rajasekhar on the violin and Ch Ramakrishna on the mridangam.
J S Sriram was born in a family of musicians. His father Abhinaya Chakravarthy J S Eswar Prasad is a bhajan singer, and his mother J Chidrupa Lakshmi, a Carnatic vocalist. He started his lessons from his mother, and is now under Akella Mallikarjuna Sarma.

The concerts are usually held in the Keyes High School campus in the open-air theatre. The singers are generally from outside Hyderabad, usually amateurs and upcoming artistes.
