Indian classical music maestro to lead three-day Master Class at St. Peter’s Del Mar

Interested in learning more about Indian music, expanding your musical horizons, or developing your skills of improvisation?

From Friday, Aug. 17, through Sunday, Aug. 19, St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Del Mar is welcoming Raga: Rasa—the Kartik Seshadri Center for Indian, Classical and Improvised Music—for a three-day master class.

Based in Cardiff, Raga Rasa is a nonprofit group focused on preserving and educating people about classical Indian music. Maestro Kartik Seshadri is a world-class musician, composer and educator; he started performing on the sitar at age 6 and was a protégé of Ravi Shankar. Today he also heads the Indian Classical Music program at UCSD.

The first day, open to the public, features conversations with Seshadri, introducing the realm of Indian classical music and improvisation, while days two and three focus on more intensive instruction.

Day One is open to anyone in the public. All musical levels are welcome, but for beginning students, a short audition is encouraged. The second and third days begin at 11 a.m. and require registration and fees. For more information about Raga: Rasa, or to reserve a space, see or call 760-753-2860. St. Peter’s is located at 334 14th St. in Del Mar Village;
