Indian Music at Waterloo Arts

Lalit Subramaniam

Music for Miles Brings in the Drummers

An Introduction to Classical Indian Music

4 pm, Sunday October 8

The gallery at Waterloo Arts, 15605 Waterloo Road, Cleveland 44110

In an introduction to both North and South Indian classical music, we’ll hear tablas and mridangams – as well as the tanpura (a stringed instrument used as a drone, without which no Indian concert can be called complete), the Western violin, played Indian-style, and South Indian vocal music. Everything will be explained by Lalit Subramaniam, a multi-talented musician with a long performance history.

The Waterloo Arts gallery will be showing “Memory External,” a show in which Matthew Gallagher and Michael Lombardy (Lombardy the artist, not Lombardi the football player) will hang prototypical works, the result of their extensive visual arts research, that represent different methods by which they have recorded and reproduced moments or memories.

And on November 12, we’ll take a trip back in the evolution of European classical music with James Hampson (the only known holder of a degree in performance on natural horn, also known as French horn), who will talk about the progress from hunting horn to the modern orchestra’s double horn, illustrating the history with performances of Beethoven’s Sonata for Horn and Piano, Gounod’s Six Melodies, the Horn Concerto No.1 by Strauss and Saint-Saens’ Romance in E Major – all on period instruments. 

The ambience at M4M is relaxed – no tickets, no dressing up, no driving downtown. Feel free to arrive late, leave early (quietly), bring in refreshments from the Callaloo Café , and ask questions.

M4M concerts are presented with the support of Local 4 Music Fund, the Music Performance Trust Fund, the Waterloo Arts Friends’ Committee, Cuyahoga Arts and Culture, and Ohio Arts Council.

Waterloo Arts is at 15605 Waterloo Road, corner of E156.; 216-692-9500.
