Carnatic concerts at Satyam theatre!
CHENNAI: Innovation is the name of the name. Come December, Carnatic music buffs in the city of Chennai will, for the first time perhaps, have an opportunity to listen to live concerts at a prime theatre.

MadRasana, promoted by V. Mahesh, has decided to provide the rasikas a unique listening experience by hosting concerts at Satyam, an iconic theatre in the heart of the city.

It will host five concerts at Satyam. All these will be held in the mornings. And, these will showcase some of the best young talents.

MadRasana, started in 2016, with the objective of bringing classical art in a very intimate setting. The objective, it appears, is to bring the artistes, the art form and the audience closer.

"MadRasana Festival will be a one of a kind music festival. We are launching the MadRasana Festival 2018 between December 23 and 27. We wanted to make sure those who are traveling from outside the city also gets to be part of this. We also realize that most of the rasikas will be busy with other concerts post lunch. Hence, all these concerts will be morning concerts between 8:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. We also wanted to be near the epicenter of the music season and at the same time present to you a venue which has not been used for a Carnatic classical concert before. We are thrilled to present this festival in one of the most iconic Theatres – Serene Screen in Sathyam Cinemas in Royapettah. We also want to have a different format for the concerts. We wanted to leverage the Serene screen as well and are excited to be presenting select episodes of MadRasana Unplugged everyday before the start of the live concert. You will be able to enjoy these with full movie experience. If you have not been following our Unplugged series you can watch them HERE. We will also be doing a digital audio launch of the MadRasana Unplugged series. A free copy will be made available for those attending the concerts. We have lined up 5 artistes one on each day ,'' a release said.

First, he promoted the MadRasana garden concerts - concerts held in natural, open settings. Then came the MadRasana stage concerts - formats of concerts in an intimate indoor settings.
