And when they're charging for a classical music concert, that itself is the sales pitch, right? Yes, you need to pay to get in Ravindra Bharathi tonite. And lots of people are.

The South Indian Cultural Association (SICA) is organising its monthly program of Carnatic classical music, at Ravindra Bharathi on 5th June. This evening, Jayaprada Ramamurthy will perform on the flute, with N S Narayanan of Hyderabad on the violin and Mahadevu Lakshmi Narayana Raju of Vijayawada on the mridangam.

Jayaprada Ramamurthy is the daughter of well-known guru Prema Ramamurthy. She has received guidance from N S Srinivasan and Dr N Ramani. She is the co-founder of the Uttaraa Centre For Performing Arts, along with danseuse Geetha Ganesan. She was the first female flautist to play the "Base Flute (Long Flute)" and the "Western Key Flute" using shift in octaves.

She has toured the world over, performed in front of many dignitaries such as the President Of India, and is, quite naturally, the recipient of many prestigious awards, some of them being Best Performer at the Spirit Of Youth festival, Chennai; the T R Mahalingam Flute Endowment Award, Chennai; and the Best Girl Flautist in Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad.

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 present President of the association, and R Chakrapani is the General Secretary.

The entry to the concert is by invitations for members - the general public need to buy donor passes of Rs. 25 and Rs. 50 per head. Please contact V Ramachandran at 92461-61420 for further details.
