The Music Academy in association with
the Indira Sivasailam Endowment Fund,
established in memory of Smt Indira
Sivasailam, has instituted an annual
memorial concert by a renowned classical
musician who would also be presented a
medal and a citation. The recipient of
this year’s award is Sanjay Subrahmanyan.
Sanjay Subrahmanyan began learning music
at the age of seven. Initial training
was under V Lakshminarayana on the
violin as well as in vocal music. He
later switched to vocal music and was
trained by Rukmini Rajagopalan for a
period of almost eight years. His skills
were further honed under Calcutta K S
Krishnamurthy which led to innovations
and blending of tradition and modernity.
Sanjay continues to learn from
Nadaswaram maestro Semponarkoil SRD
Sanjay places a special emphasis on
teaching music, and has a number of
successful young students. He has
enthralled audiences across the world,
winning numerous accolades and awards.
The event will be held at the Music
Academy on the 6 October 2011.
