“Highly melodic and ornamental with a complex rhythmic structure”– Washington Post

 “The performance of complex melodic lines, with their characteristic melismas was beautifully supple.”  – New York Times

Gandharva Choir, the distinguished Indian Music Choir will be starting their US tour with a concert in Boston on Saturday, June 24 at Regis College. Thereafter, they go on to perform in major US cities including at Kennedy Center in Washington DC.  A Video Glimpse of the Gandharva Choir.

The 32-person group consists of trained classical musicians who know how to keep audiences glued for hours by unleashing an endless stream of thrilling melodic songs and Hindustani and Carnatic compositions, in a unique style of music that is captivating for kids and the entire family.

“Gandharva Choir is a different kind of musical expression. The sound of our choir is different from the normally heard solo Indian Classical music. Choir music generates a new kind of joy both for the performing musicians as well as the audience,” said the choir conductor Pt. Madhup Mudgal who is a disciple of the genius Pt. Kumar Gandharva.

The choir is known for innovative renderings of Dhrupad, Tarana, Kritis and Thillanas – many of which they have learned from stalwarts such as Pt. Mallikarjun Mansur, Vidvan Sri Rajaram, and Vidvan MD Srinivasan.

Learnquest Academy of Music and Meru Education Foundation are hosting the Gāndharva Choir in the Boston area with a concert on Saturday, June 24 at 6pm at Regis College (235 Wellesley Street, Weston, MA 02493).

Come enjoy an uplifting concert and enhance your appreciation of Indian music through a unique experience.
