Ever since its inception, the Wednesday Recital has been a tradition with ITC-SRA. The recital plays a pivotal role in the training of our scholars as it is aimed at moulding an artist as a performer. After the initial training, each of our scholars has to learn to perform before a discerning audience, consisting of the Experts Committee, gurus, critics, fellow scholars and music lovers. The Wednesday Recital thus provides a platform where not only the scholarís vocal skills but also his or her knowledge of stagecraft and presentation skills in acknowledging seniors, accompanists and the audience are put to the test.

This session is recorded and is evaluated subsequently. The scholarís performance is graded and necessary guidance offered is by the Experts Committee. Each scholar's turn at this Wednesday recital comes once in three-four months. Non-performing scholars help organise the whole show, from arranging the seating to managing the stage and from welcoming the guests to comparing.

This feature brings to you excerpts from our Wednesday Recital archives. This fascinating collection of music spread over nearly thirty-five years, features the music of SRA scholars, both past students who are today stalwarts in the field as well as our present budding musicians.
