1) Mumbai Offers City's First Carnatic Music Degree: MUMBAI, INDIA, August 30, 2002: The Shanmukhananda Sangeet Vidyalaya will offer a University of Mumbai-recognized degree course in the Indian classical Carnatic music as part of the golden jubilee celebrations of its parent body, the Shanmukhananda Fine Arts and Sangeetha Sabha, located in Sion. The Bachelor of Fine Arts (Carnatic) to be offered by the Vidyalaya will be the first degree course in Carnatic music offered outside Chennai. The course is part of the sabha's plan to popularize the learning and appreciation of classical music in Mumbai, say members. The Vidyalaya presently offers diploma courses in Carnatic music and teaches instrumental music in the Hindustani style to nearly 730 students. According to members of the sabha, there has been a gradual decline in the popularity of classical music in the city though several organizations have been working hard to change that. "There has been a revival of classical music in South India with more youngsters learning it, but Mumbai has been unaffected. We want to play the role of a catalyst here," said V. Shankar, president of the sabha.
