Sangeet Bahaar 2005 - a Tsunami Relief Charity Concert
By Shreedhar Ganapathy on Jan 17, 2005
On 22nd January, over two months of intense practice sessions and preparations come down to 4 hours of a grand musical experience at the 800-seat Campbell Heritage Theatre. Originally, Sangeet Bahaar 2005 was intended as a platform for showcasing Bay Area's talented musicians in Indian music - both film, and light classical genres, on vocals, and instrumentals. But, with the colossal tragedy unfolding in Asia, the organizers at Manoranjan Arts and Performances in conjunction with the India Community Center at Milpitas decided that donating the proceeds of the show for relief and rehabilitation would be the best course of action.
I am contributing to the concert by providing synthesizer keyboard support for many songs and am rendering one vocal solo film song. I am looking forward to the event and so are over 50 motivated participants. The details of the concert are here. (http://www.manoranjan.org/sangeetbahaar2005_charity.html)
