• Sitar Concert

An Indian Classical Music Performance by Shahid Parvez & Vishal Nagar

4-6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2007
C. Walsh Theatre
55 Temple St., Boston  

The College of Arts and Sciences Cultural Committee presents a sitar concert, performed by Shahid Parvez and accompanied on tabla by Vishal Nagar.  A reception with the artists will follow after the concert.

Ustad Shahid Parvez is regarded as one of the finest sitar players today.  His dazzling virtuosity and innovative genius have earned him a legacy as a giant of the sitar. 

He is acknowledged by stalwarts like Ravi Shakar and Viayat Khan as the torch bearer for the current generations of sitarists.

A tabla virtuoso, Vishal Nagar has been praised in the Indian press for his unique combination of melodic tabla sound with masterful command of rhythm.  He is equally acclaimed for his performances as an accompanist of dances, vocalists, and instrumentalists, as well as as a soloist.
