Music festival at Peyalwar Sannathi at Triplicane gets under way
CHENNAI, December 14: The annual December music festival is currently under way at the Peyalwar Sannathi at Triplicane here.

Organised by Chandra Sekhara Media, the festival will go on till December 25.

The festival is held for the 9th year now at Triplicane.

The festival has become an important constituent of people living in and around the four Mada streets of Sri Parthasarathy Temple in Triplicane. A part of the 108 Divya Desam temples, this is, perhaps, the only temple where Sri Krishna (Parthasarathy) gives darshan with HIS entire family - wife Rukmini, brothers Balaraman and Sathyaki, son Pradhumnan and grandson Anirudh.

Artistes consider it a blessing to perform here. A unique feature of the music festival here at Triplicane is that it offers young talents an opportunity - a holy platform - to perform and offer their prayers in the process.

It features three sessions in the evening each day - 5.30 to 6.30, 6.30 to 8.00 and 8.00 to 10.00.

As usual, the artiste list this season too has some talented names. Well-known senior artistes too are slated to give their concerts here.

Vikku Vinayakaram, T.H. Subhash Chandran, Dr. Ganesh, Mahesh Vinayagram, Rajesh Vidhya, Carnatica brothers, Bavadharini, Mandolin Rajesh, Vikram Raghavan, Dharini Kalyanaraman and Sainthavi, among others, are giving performance here this season.

This annual festival is gaining increasing support from artistes, sponsors and the like.
