Indian Classical and Western Vocal Ensemble for Fundraiser
Young singing duo from Houston, Kruthi and Keerthana Bhat, will perform “Melody of Compassion”, a vocal ensemble of Carnatic, Hindustani and Western music in the Pearland area for a fundraiser by Global Organization for Divinity on Dec 22, 2012.
Directed by their mother and renowned Indian classical vocalist, Mrs. Rajarajeshwary Bhat, the concert will be held at 5 pm on Saturday, December 22, at Pearland ISD’s Robert Turner High School Auditorium located at 4717 Bailey Road, Pearland TX adjacent to Pearland Junior High South.
Admission to the concert is free. Patrons are requested to donate generously towards the cause, which is the construction of a charitable healthcare center in rural India, in a village that is in need of medical facilities. Detailed information about this project is available at http://www.godivinity.org/
Teenagers Kruthi and Keerthana Bhat are singers par excellence who have numerous Indian classical music awards and accolades to their credit. They have given innumerable concerts both in India and the USA, and are well-known budding Houston stars in the Indian classical music arena. In this concert—depicting the universal spirit of compassion that transcends all boundaries—they will bring an innovation to their usually traditional Carnatic (south Indian music system) renditions, with the added flavor of Hindustani (north Indian music system quite different from Carnatic) and Western pieces.
The sisters will be accompanied by other local young artistes, Vishaal Sapuram on the chitravina (a lute-like stringed instrument), Mayavaram Siva on mridangam (south-Indian percussion), Aditya Srivatsan on tabla (north-Indian percussion) and Elizabeth Swim on the piano.
“Humanity and Divinity are inseparable.”
