Morning! What’s new you ask…let me tell you!
I want to let everyone know about some exciting news…The people of WQED have decided to do a television interview about one of Pittsburgh’s sitar players. Luckily they picked me! I will be interviewed by Pittsburgh’s famous Chris Moore on the program Pittsburgh 360. Mr. Moore will conduct a private interview with me and record the July 27th program at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh. You heard that right! My July 27th performance at the library will be televised. How much of it will be televised? You will have to tune in for the details. This is a free event from 2pm – 3pm on a Sunday. I will be performing on surbahar and sitar. They have a café so feel free to come early and have coffee and tea and snacks. And if you feel brave, maybe get there earlier and pick up a book and read it…for the fun of it! There are portions of the Library that even overlook the Dinosaurs Exhibit in the Museum of Natural History. But for the brave and curious with adventure running through their blood…go to the card catalog (a.k.a computer) and look up Indian Classical Music! Or sitar! Or Raga and Tala! Or any books on Hindustani and Carnatic! I did, and ten years later, I am performing in the same building that brought on this love affair. So come on out show your appreciation by being there and taking part in this experience. The Library, Indian Classical Music, and I could really use your support.
Also, today I will be playing a house concert in Wilmington, NC. Doors open at 7:30pm and the show starts at 8pm. There is plenty of traditional seating (bring a cushion). Anyone in the Triangle wanting to go, we still have some open seats if you want to car pooling. Call for details and address: 910-398-7683 or 412-414-8617.
