Family members of saxophone maestro Kadri Gopalnath will hold a music concert in the city on December 6 and 7 to mark the maestro’s 70th birth anniversary.

Talking to reporters here on Monday, the maestro’s younger son Manikanth Kadri said that the two-day concert will feature performances from different artistes.

“It will not be just saxophone. It will be a classical music festival,” he said and added that they are yet to finalise the venue of the programme. They have also decided to present awards in the name of his father.

Mr. Manikanth Kadri said that his wife, Aditi, who is running a music school in Chennai, will re-name her school after his father.

In his condolence message, Mangaluru City South MLA D. Vedavyas Kamath said that a bust of the maestro will be installed in the city to honour his contribution to the field of Indian music.

The maestro’s elder son Guruprasad Kadri, who plays flute, said that he consciously decided to opt out of classical music and concentrate on academics while his younger brother chose music. Mr. Guruprasad Kadri, who is now the head of operations at Unimoni in Kuwait, thanked the Union government for expediting the process of getting civil ID in Kuwait that helped him reach Mangaluru on Monday morning and be part of the last rites of his father.

The maestro’s wife, Sarjojini, his daughter, Ambika Mohan, his brothers, Ganeshnath, Chandranath and Rameshnath, and several other family members attended the last rites at Sajipa Mooda on Monday.
