On Monday, November 21st, we will enjoy an evening of classical Indian music, performed by Dr. Rajeeb Chakraborty, followed by a dinner and discussion.
The name Dr. Rajeeb Chakraborty breathes an astounding versatility of self-expression as a musician, an educator, music composer and conductor. Rajeeb began performing from the early age of 9 years and has taken part in all the major music festivals and concerts in India for more than four decades. His talent has been taking him across the globe from the United States, Canada, to all over the Western European block where he has participated in countless concerts and major festivals.
Along with being a highly acclaimed musician, Dr. Chakraborty has built himself a separate identity as a regular academic instructor in premier universities in the western world as well as in India. His thesis subject 'The role of computers in learning and teaching North Indian classical music' itself reveals his enthusiasm to make Indian classical music more approachable for students all around the globe.
Dr. Chakraborty is currently visiting the University of Michigan campus as a Fulbright scholar.
We will begin the evening by meeting in the Helmut Stern Auditorium to watch the performance. The evening will conclude with a dinner and discussion of the performance.
