It would appear to be another evening of old melodies at Thyagaraja Gana Sabha tonite. And what makes it all special, however, is who's performing and who's watching.
Megacity Nava Kala Vedika is organising a musical nite of Ghantasala songs penned by Late Athreya, with music scored by Chandra Bose, at Sri Thyagaraya Gana Sabha, this Friday. On this occasion, Chandra Bose will be felicitated with the Acharya Atreya Memorial Award.
The program starts with a welcome dance (Swagatha Nruthyam) by Sweta Madhuri, followed by the musical nite by Nanduri Laxman Rao, Bala Kameshwar Rao, Sharat Chandra, Jaishree and Sharada Reddy among others, who will render various songs of the Atreya - Chandra Bose duo.
The program ends with the conferring of the Acharya Atreya Memorial Award upon Chandra Bose. The chief guest for the evening is Dr C Narayana Reddy, and the other important guests are directors K Raghavendra Rao and S V Krishna Reddy, music director M M Keeravani, producer Atchi Reddy, lyricist Suddala Ashok Teja and Project Director of National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), Ganapathi Reddy.
Megacity Kala Vedika was established by Mallikarjuna Sarma about 5 years ago, out of his love towards old cine songs. He stages musical nites every month at Sri Thyagaraya Gana Sabha, by bringing in amateur artistes.
