If classical music is your passion, you’re in for a real treat!  On Saturday, April 15th and Sunday, April 16th, LearnQuest Academy of Music will host a two-day Indian classical music conference (sangeet sammelan) at the Fine Arts Center of Regis College in Weston.

This first-of-its-kind event in Massachusetts, offering almost 10 hours of continuous music each day, will feature some of India’s top instrumental and vocal artists, spanning several generations and legacies.

Famous and established artists, such as Ustad Imrat Hussein Khan, Ali Ahmad Hussein Khan, Ashwini Bhide, Gundecha Brothers, Nayan Ghosh as well as some of the rising stars of Indian music will grace the stage.  Featured instruments will include sitar, sarod, shehnai, sarengi, bansuri (flute), violin, veena, keyboard, tabla, and mridangam.  Vocal traditions will span the rare Dhrupad, as well as the more contemporary Kheyal styles.  In a special musical tribute to diversity, a Carnatic and Hindustani Jugalbandi and a unique item, called Music Triveni is planned where the artists of diverse music persuasions, namely Hindustani, Carnatic and Western Jazz, will blend their music together, uniting in the common purpose of musical expression.

Conference details and registration information are available on the LearnQuest web site at www.learnquest.org
