A Glimpse Of Thiruvaiyaru In Lexington, MA
Boston area is blessed with a wealth of very dedicated Indian classical music teachers. Their vast knowledge, experience and the cultural events along with the music appreciation opportunities they bring to their students and their families is so vital for the appreciation of music.
It is a tradition to celebrate Thygaraja day at Smt. Revathi Ramaswamy’s home every year. This year it was held on Apr 7, 2018. Smt. Revathi Ramaswamy is an accomplished musician whose Guru was her mother Vainaka Gayaka Vidhushi late Smt.Ranaganayaki Sundararajan of Mysore. The students of her school, Upasana School of Music enthusiastically prepared and showcased their talent with a short introduction that gave the background of their chosen piece. This introduction captured the audience attention and helped the audience to appreciate the nuances of the presentation more.
After the students’ solo presentations, Smt. Revathi with her friends, Shri Ram Naidu (Veena), Smt. Durga V. Subramanian (Veena) Shri Sriram Rekapalli ( Mirudanga) and her Veena senior student, Sanjana Sankar, and Vocal students Ritika Gurjar and Varun Sasisekar (Vocal) brought the Thiruvaiyaru to Lexington by beautifully rendering the five Pancharatna Kritis.
Smt.Revathi Ramaswamy also gave a small introduction before each piece that explained the beauty of each soulful composition. The Event was much appreciated by all parents who are thankful they are given this opportunity to be immersed in this divine music. It was heartwarming to see young kids (our future generation) appreciating this divine music. This would not be possible without the enthusiastic support of Shri. Ramaswamy the background organizer from surround sound to all-round support in many aspects for the Event.
