The felicitation program will be followed by a concert by the Parur violin trio. K Swaminathan, Chief Vigilance Commissioner, Government of AP, is the chief guest of the function.

Dr. Sripada Pinakapani is a doctor, administrator and professor of medicine, known more as a Carnatic musician, from Kurnool, AP. He was head of the department of medicine at the Kurnool Government Hospital and the Kurnool Medical College. He was honoured with the title of Sangeeta Kalanidhi, and has also received the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award and the Padma Bhushan, from the Government Of India. His disciples include Dr. Nedunuri Krishnamurthy, Dr. Nookala Chinna Satyanarayana, and the Malladi brothers. He wrote several books on Carnatic music, and 'Gaanakalasarvasvamu', which had every minute detail of kritis, ran into multiple volumes.

Prof. M S Anantharaman was trained by his father, Parur A Sundaram Iyer. He also learnt Hindustani music, and has been playing the violin for more than 7 decades, right from the age of seven. He worked as a professor at the Central College Of Carnatic Music in Chennai, for 22 years. He even taught the violin at the Sri Venkateswara Temple, Pittsburg (USA), and at Hong Kong. He plays solos, duos and trios, besides accompanying other artistes, including Ariyakudi, Chembai, Maharajapuram, M S Subbalakshmi, D K Pattamal, M L V, K B Sundarambal and others. He was awarded the 'Kalaimamani' (Government Of Tamil Nadu), the Sangeet Natak Academi Award (Government Of India), the 'Sangeeta Kala Acharya' title (Music Academy), and other titles and awards.
