Kalasagaram's 42nd Annual Festival of Music, Dance & Drama is on at Keyes High School, from 28th November to 6th December.

The 4th day of the festival will have Sudha Raghunathan performing a Carnatic vocal recital. She will be accompanied by Embar S Kannan on the violin, Neyveli Skandasubrahmanian on the mridangam, R Raman on the morsing and Sundar Kumar on the kanjira.

Sudha inherited an interest in music from her mother, Choodamani, and started her formal training at the age of 9. Later, she learnt from T V Viswanathan and B V Lakshman for a brief period. She came under the tutelage of the illustrious Padmabhushan and Sangeetha Kalanidhi, Dr. M L Vasantha Kumari, in 1977, when she also won a Govt. of India Scholarship given to young artistes for advanced training in music. With Dr. M L V's encouragement, Sudha pursued music as a career, and also provided vocal support to the maestro for a decade. She is considered Dr. M L V's 'vaarisu' by music lovers.

Sudha Raghunathan is a top-ranking artiste of the All-India Radio in Chennai, and performs regularly on AIR and Doordharshan. She has performed at concerts in all the major cities of India, besides undertaking concert tours all over the world. She has won over 250 awards and prizes, and some of them are - the Kalaimamani from the Govt. of Tamil Nadu (1993), the Padmasri from the Govt. of India (2004), the Sangeetha Kalasagara (2003), the Sangeetha Choodamani from Sri Krishna Gana Sabha (1997), and the Isai Peroli and the VST Award for excellence from Karthik Fine Arts.
