Musicon: Indian Spring Colours | Concert 3

2nd March 2020, 19:30, St Chad's College Chapel, 18 North Bailey

Roopa Panesar sitar
Bhupinder Chaggar tabla

For our finale we move to the intimate setting of St Chad's College Chapel and shift the focus to the Hindustani instrumental style by presenting a concert by Roopa Panesar, one of the finest sitar players to emerge on the Indian music scene in the UK. Trained from a very young age by the great educationalist and sitar maestro Ustad Dharambir Singh MBE, Roopa has established herself as an outstanding and much-loved performer. Roopa will be accompanied by Bhupinder Chaggar on tabla, one of the leading disciples of the renowned tabla maestro of the Benares gharana, Pandit Sharda Sahai. This is a rare opportunity to hear a top-quality sitar and tabla performance in Durham.

The concert will comprise presentations of traditional Hindustani ragas and talas.

A pre-concert discussion will take place at the venue before the concert.

Tickets: £10, Students £4, Under 18s £1
