An enchanting flute concert by Flutist Vidwan Chandan Kumar was hosted at VIIS in the month of January. The program was appreciated by the young audience from University of Minnesota who participated in a three week program. The musical compositions by the flutist created an environment of hearing the text of the compositions through his constant interactions with the audience. This communication between the artistes and the students built a bridge between the music of the west and that of the east. The ensemble also included Sri HK Narasimhamurthy on the Violin, Vidwan G.S. Ramanujan on the Mridanga and Sri S. Manjunath on the Ghata.
