The Inauguration was followed by a grand Carnatic vocal concert by Vidwan G Ravikiran. The concert had a majestic start with a varnam "Chalamela" in Naatakuranji raaga. Ravikiran chose to expand Shanmughapriya and Begada ragaas in great detail. The raga lakshanas were beautifully captured and these were followed by the songs "Marivere Dikkevariyya" and "Naadopasana".
He enthralled the rasikas with well paced nerevals and lilting swara prastaras. In between these major renditions, he sang the royal "Ksheera Saagara Shayana" with considerable aplomb. The tani avaratana was beautifully coordinated with intricate taala patterns and interesting korvais and the final kuraippu. Ravikiran was admirably supported by Vittal Rangan on the violin, Mannarkoil J Balaji on the mridangam and Guru Prasanna on the Khanjira.
