Music of the Carolinas: Carnatic Veena, featuring Gowri Srinivas, Sudhindra Rao, and Samarth Rao

Sunday, June 9, 3 p.m.

The veena belongs to a family of ancient stringed instruments with many variations, but the design used in the classical Carnatic music common to southern India, and used by Srinivas, resembles a long-necked, pear-shaped lute. Srinivas performs in community music programs and teaches music. She is joined today by Sudhindra Rao, a seasoned musician from a long and illustrious family of musicians who has played throughout India and across the United States, and his son, Samarth, who is currently a high school sophomore in Raleigh.

Free tickets for this concert are distributed while they last beginning at 2 p.m.

Presented with PineCone and support from North State Bank and MOHA/museum members. Join MOHA before or after the concert—for half-price museum membership! In addition, enter our raffle for a prize from the Museum Shop (winner will be drawn this week and need not be present).
