The Gandharva Mahavidyalya and the National Sanskar Bharti organised a classical music soiree at the Gandhrava Institute on Saturday evening.


Principal Anita Sharma welcomed the audience and chief guest Gian Chand Gupta, member of legislative assembly (MLA), Panchkula.

The soulful melodic strains emanating from the magnificent sitar recital by acclaimed classical music maestro Pandit Harvinder Sharma reverberated the otherwise serene ambience of Gandharva Mahavidyalaya.

Sharma is the foremost disciple of legendary ustad Vilayat Khan Saheb, a top grade artiste of All India Radio (AIR) and Doordarshan.

Pandit Sharma presented raga Jhinjhoti with an elaborate alaap, jod alaap and a composition in slow pace (Vilambat laya) and a fast paced (Drut laya) composition.

He also played raga “Pahadi”and dadra “Rangi saari chunariya”and displayed adroit skill, virtuosity and expertise by weaving the musical notes in lilting melodic patterns.

Earlier, prodigious classical vocal virtuoso Aditya Sharma, a disciple of Guru Ulhas Kashalkar, presented “raag kedar”with “jogi rawla”in slow pace followed by a drut bandish “Sughar chatur baiyan”. Both Harvinder Sharma and Aditya were accompanied by the talented and renowned ‘tabla’ exponent Jaidev and Rakesh Kumar on harmonium.
