Classical musical treat with Pt. Shiv Kumar: Gurgaon people thrilled
Gurgaon is a city of many faces. The cultural face of the city is being explored with a number of theaters, street plays and musicals. Epicentre, Kingdom of Dreams and other art centres are doing a lot to promote art and culture in a city, which is primarily populated with migrants from various places. Keeping this in mind, the Aravali Centre for Art and Culture (ACAC) is organising a classical musical evening for the people of the millennium city.

Scheduled for September 6 evening, the night would be made magical by Pt. Shiv Kumar Sharma, accompanied by Ram Kumar Mishra on tabla and Takahiro Arai on tanpura. The venue of the place is at Shiv Nadar Gurgaon and it is open for everyone interested.

The ACAC is a non-profit organisation, which provides a platform dedicated to culture and art of the city. The program would be initiated by a 30 minute curtain raiser from a Hindustani classical vocal recital by Rama Sundar Ranganathan, accompanied by Vinod Lele on tabla and Vinay Mishra on harmonium.

Although the evening is deemed to be a magical one, the crowd is expected to be niche as a lot many people are not into Indian classical music. These days Honey Singh's tickets would sell more than people who actually create music and not noise. Talking about the show, a music enthusiast said, '' I was actually planning to go back home that weekend, but I would definitely stay back for this one and have a listen. Who would want to miss the magic of santoor?''

On similar lines, another singer, Lipika Sen, said, '' Gurgaon is largely about the loud and the show offs, whereas this evening is just the opposite. I am so looking forward to this musical evening and cant wait for the days to fly.''
