    Many thanks for the excellent work! I am returning to the December season after an absence of some years. Have things changed re ticketing situation? Most morning anf afternoon sessions used to be free, now I note only certain events are labelled as free in your list. In particular can you tell me about the Music Academy ticket arrangements? Their web site is down. Many thanks. Alan

    • Ram says:

      Things are the same in almost all sabhas. Most morning and afternoon sessions are still free, including the Music Academy sessions/ concerts. The last two concerts in the day at the Academy are ticketed.

      I will update the free/ ticketed info on the site for more concerts in the next few days.

      • Alan Tootill says:

        Thanks for that. I was just wondering, particularly, about the Music Academy morning concerts, as they have some big names rather than younger generation. Is it pretty impossible to get a season ticket for the M.A. as I’ve seen suggested?
        I see you’re playing a couple of dates whilst I’ll be there. I’ll try and make an effort to come hear you!

      • Ram says:

        Alan,

        All the morning concerts at the Music Academy are free.
        I am not sure about the season ticket there. Will try to check and get back.
        I am playing on many other days as well. Will update the complete schedule in the next few days. Will be great to meet you in person.

        Ram

  3. Mrs. Bhuvaneshwari Subramanian says:

    Sir, Ranjani Gayatri’s concert on 21.11.12 at Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan is ticketed or free? Kindly reply, Bhuvaneshwari S

  4. S.Muralikrishnan says:

    Sir
    You are making a big service to music lovers by compiling
    all the concert details

    Best wishes and thanks for the details.

    S.Muralikrishnan

  5. Vishy says:

    Thak u sir. Which are trhe Hindustani music concerts in the Music season. I could find one, Shubha Mudgal. Are there others? Can you pl tag it so that one can search.

    • Alan Tootill says:

      On this list there’s 23rd Dec Parveen Sultana at Kamraj Hall. And on 31st M. Venkatesh Kumar at the Music Academy.
