Hello & Greetings!!

I am Abinav Sridharan, and I am raising funds for my venture Opera India. This initiative, which started in the year 2013 during my Bachelor's studies in London aims at bringing Western Classical Operatic music and Indian Classical music together into one art form. The performances blend in theatrical acting, operatic singing and Hindustani and Carnatic music to one stage production. 

Being a music educator and vocalist myself, I have been trained in Carnatic, Hindustani and Operatic performance for over 20 years. Previously working as a faculty at Dr. A.R. Rahman's KM Music Conservatory, I have been active in the field of music education and research during the past seven years. A recently graduated Ethnomusicological researcher from King's College, London under the King's Masters Scholarship, I am now in the process of building funds through generous donors and patrons of art to bring Opera India to the public and popularise different Classical music art forms.  During our past performances, we have received numerous reviews that the blending of art forms of two different and contrasting parts of the world creates a unique and also, an interesting experience for the audience. 

The funds raised through ImpactGuru will be used towards training an ensemble of singers and instrumentalists in both Indian and Western Classical music and towards the production costs of a final public performance. This would be the first step towards globalizing Indian Classical music in its purest form, though achieved through an amalgamation of the Western and Eastern traditions of art. The theme, storyline, artistes and finalized dates of the production will be soon shared here.

I would like to extend my gratitude in advance for your interest in promoting new ventures. Please help Opera India in taking these baby steps towards building a Global Classical Music, and sharing this fundraiser with your friends and family!

We are grateful for your help!
