(In Chandigarh Sangeet Natak Academy Auditorium)
A three day Music Appreciation Course was conducted by Indian National Theatre in collaboration with Chandigarh Sangeet Natak Academy from the 7th of October to the 9th of October in the Chandigarh Sangeet Natak Academy Auditorium.The idea of holding this course was to enlighten music lovers with little, or no knowledge of music, on the basic concepts of North Indian classical music.
The society had invited eminent vocalists to throw light on ‘swar’,’laya’,’taal’, ‘thaat’, modulations of voice,presentation of a’raag’,various forms of North Indian classical music etc. The speakers included Mrs.Vinita Gupta (Rampur Sadarang Parampara), Dr.Arvind Sharma(Punjab university),Dr.Nivedita Singh(Punjabi university),Sh.Alankar Singh(Punjabi university).
The course was very well received and the positive response of the listeners definitely proved to be a step towards promoting classical music, as that is precisely what Indian National Theatre stands for.
Indian National Theatre has been holding similar courses in the previous years and intends to hold such courses more than once a year on popular demand.
