Bombay Jayashri concert

Adam Concert Hall, 16 June 2007, 7 pm

This was the first concert that the new and recently-elected committee organised.

It was a sell-0ut with the Adam Concert Hall being full to capacity, thanks to the popularity of the artist.

Sadly though, there were a couple of glitches beyond the organisers’ control. The artists’ flight from Australia was late and they were cleared by immigration/customs/MAF also late. Also, Jayashri’s luggage didn’t come through and mridangist J Vaidyanathan’s instrument was opened and examined thoroughly before being cleared to enter the country. The violinist accompanying them was H H Sridhar.

In spite of all these hiccups, the artists got themselves ready amazingly quickly and managed to start the concert only half-an-hour after the scheduled start time. And what a concert it turned out to be!

Vice-President Ravi made the welcome address and President Radhika presented the vote of thanks.
