World over, Tamil people as well as those who are associated with Carnatic Music are familiar with Chennaiyil Thiruvaiyaru. We wish to share the reason for naming it thus and the idea that sparked the creation of this event.
In 2005, we thought of conducting a music concert on behalf of Lakshman Sruthi Musicals and we wanted the event to be unique and different from others. Every year, all artists associated with Carnatic music assemble in Thiruvaiyaru and sing Thiyagarajar’s divine Pancharathna Keertanas soulfully. Why not bring that same ambience to Chennai, we contemplated. It was our decision to recreate that event and begin our music series with the Thyagaraja Aradhana in Chennai.
In the month of December, the iconic, magnificent and fulfilling ‘Chennaiyil Thiruvaiyaru’ music and dance festival, a landmark event is being conducted in the city. Lakshman Sruthi Musicals has been conducting this for the benefit of the rasikas at Kamarajar Arangam from December 18th – 25th every year.
In this astonishing 11th season, top notch performances by leading Carnatic and Hindustani stalwarts, legends, upcoming talents, musicians, dancers and discoursers have been scheduled to amaze you and take your breath away, with 53 enchanting shows from 7:00 AM to 10:00 PM daily.
