Free Music at the CV Library, Sept 1, 2012

Submitted by ken on Fri, 08/31/2012 - 15:05

A special September free family music program sponsored by the Friends of the Carmel Valley Library will be presented on Saturday, Sept. 1 at 1:00 p.m. in the library’s community room. It is entitled Shubham to signify the auspicious combination of melody and joy that one experiences with Indian Carnatic music, the classical music predominant in Southern India that can be traced back to the ancient Vedas from the Indian scriptures. The program will include classical pieces from various composers dating from the 15th century to modern times and rendered in different languages and musical forms. Similar to western classical music, Indian classical music embodies not only the seven fundamental notes manifested as 16 different sounds, but also the same concepts of scale, rhythm, melody, pitch, and modes. The modes, called raagas, when combined with lyrics in one of many Indian languages, set the mood and tone for the individual pieces, bringing the music to life. The program will last one hour. The Library is located at 3919 Townsgate Drive in Carmel Valley, San Diego. For further information call (858) 552-1668 or see the Friends of the Carmel Valley Library website at www.carmelvalleylibrary.org.
