- From where do you get to know about the concerts happening?
‘Cinema Arts Events’ section in the 4th page of ‘The Hindu’ everyday and the Friday supplement, ‘Friday Review’ still remain the best source till date even though so many other newspapers have now come. Other source is the ‘Concerts in Chennai’ page in Ram’s blog. T.M.Krishna’s website, Sanjay’s blog, Guitar Prasanna’s MySpace page and Sandeep Narayan’s MySpace page are the sources for their respective concert schedules.
- What are the ticket prices?
During non-Season, most of the concerts are ‘All are Welcome’ ones, i.e., free. Season or otherwise, unless you want a ticket in the first few rows, a concert ticket isn’t going to cost you more than 50 or 100 bucks or at the most 200 bucks. Don’t be surprised if a ticket is priced less than 50 rupees also.
- What is the duration of a concert?
Generally 2 to 2.5 or 3 hrs
