The second part of the concert is a first-time partnership with the local Indian community, presenting a 45 minute feast of various genres of Indian Music, culminating in a grand spectacle of Indian dancers presenting a visual interpretation of music that blends East and West. Sujata Venkateswar, an Indian classical vocalist, is the artistic director for this segment. The program seeks to promote an understanding and an appreciation for the diversity and depth of Indian music.
