And if the concert by Alter Egos is too loud and too mass for you, tonite there's another form of Western too. The Taj Residency and the Alliance Française of Hyderabad, in association with the French Embassy in India, are presenting a Western Classical Music Concert on the violin and the cello, The Duo Classique, by Julie Arnulfo and her husband/partner Nicolas Paul, at the Taj Residency tonite.
