Sharada Cultural Trust is organising its 20th Annual Cultural Festival Of Music & The 163rd Aradhana Of Sadguru Sri Thyagaraja Swamy, from 30th January to 7th February, at Keyes High School.

Raghunathan 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 won a Govt. of India Scholarship given to young artistes for advanced training in music. With her encouragement, Raghunathan pursued music as a career, and also provided vocal support to Dr. M L V 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, 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.
