Anyone going? It's been a while since I've been there but this year I'll be in Chennai for the second half of Dec.

Getting down to a shortlist of performances I might be interested in. Cut down list of about only 600 available to me now.

I just looked at the schedule .... it's unbelievable how much there is to select from! Is this simply a december thing, or is there this wealth of possibilities every month?

I noticed, by the way, that at least 2 events will be broadcast live online on monday!

The Season was I think original centred around the Music Academy's annual festival. But snce then it has broadened, with many smaller sabhas (societies) putting on events. I believe as the pressure on halls for performances has mounted some of the sabhas without their own halls have ben forced to hire halls outside the peak. So in reality the "December" season, extends from November through to January, when dance starts to take over.

Most, if not all, of the morning and early afternoon concerts give the opportunity of younger and up-and-coming artists to perform. "Seasoned" artists usually perform in the ticketed evening concerts, often performing on several occasions at different sabhas over the season.

I have only been in Chennai during December, so haven't knowledge of how frequently there are concerts through the rest of the year, but I suspect there is a lot of activity. But not, of course like in the season, when at weekends, as you will have found, there can be over 100 concerts to choose from in a single day! Staggering.

According to the wikipedia entry for "madras music season", this 6-week music festival as become one of the world's largest cultural event! What a treat that must be!
