Tere Sur Aur Mere Geet - A Tribute To Lata Mangeshkar

Asha for Education whose mission is to catalyze socio-economic change in India through education of underprivileged children hosted a musical fundraiser at  the Scottish Rites Museum in Lexington, MA on Saturday, April 1, 2017.  The event was the brainchild of Meena Sundaram who coordinated this fabulous event.  

Local singers Meena Sundaram, Anuradha Palakurthi, Vaishnavi Kondapalli, Sharanya Sarkar Varma, Anusha Kulkarni, Shekhar Shastri, Sankar Gangaikondan, Pankaj Shah and Vijay Kumar presented a fine tribute to the queen of  melody Lata Mangeshkar.  The presentations set to live accompaniment was a real  treat for music lovers. 

The popularity of the songs like Aayenga Aanewale a song created decades ago is a testimony to the classical nature of almost all of Lata’s hit numbers. New England is indeed blessed to have fine musicians who can do justice to these wonderful numbers. The singers had the audience glued to their seats for the entire 4 hours as they walked us down through memory lane. The MCs Ajay Jain and Sonal Yadav did a fine job keeping the program moving at a beautiful pace. 

The grand finale with five singers was quite a lovely tribute to the maestro and was a fitting finale to the evening.  Meena Sundaram's husband, Sundaram also co-sponsored the program in honor of his mother.
