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

On the 3rd day of the festival, the brother-sister duo of Lalgudi G J R Krishnan & Lalgudi Vijayalakshmi will be performing a violin duet recital. They will be accompanied by Mannargudi A Eswaran on the mridangam and K Vaikkom Gopalakrishnan on the kanjira.

GJR began his early lessons on the violin at the age of 5, under the tutelage of his grandfather and guru Lalgudi Gopala Iyer, and later from his father Lalgudi Jayaraman. He is a Post-Graduate in Commerce (M Com), a Cost And Works Accountant (ICWA) and a Company Secretary (ACS). He chose music as his profession, out of his love for the art.

Lalgudi Vijayalakshmi commenced her lessons at the age of 6 under the watchful eyes of her illustrous father Lalgudi Jayaraman. She holds a Master of Arts in English Literature, and has followed it up with a diploma in music. She had her first performance at the age of 13 alongside her father.

The brother and sister duo have performed all over India and abroad, always receiving rave reviews. Their concerts overseas have been at Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Italy, West Germany, the USA, Canada, the Middle East and Greece.
