Kashmiris Snub Hurriyat Call To Boycott Zubin Mehta Concert

In fact, insiders say that the call for boycott and strike, which led to shops, schools and establishments being forced to shut, may have even helped increase viewership. The survey by audience measurement agency TAM was conducted on behalf of Prasar Bharati to gauge the response for the music maestro Zubin Mehta conducted ‘Ehsaas-e-Kashmir’ concert. The results show that 64% of the adult population of Srinagar tuned in to DD’s telecast of the concert, and watched it for an average of 55 minutes. The data also revealed that more youth watched the concert telecast than those in the upper age bracket (that is above 35 years). The concert, organized by the German embassy and telecast by Prasar Bharati on September 7, was the first major event to be recorded and beamed on high definition format by the public broadcaster. “Our gamble paid off. We succeeded in reaching the people of Kashmir with music and the message of peace. DD has proved that it can successfully telecast world class programme on the state-of-the-art high definition format,” said Jawhar Sircar, CEO of Prasar Bharati. All stops were pulled for the broadcast: a four-camera HDTV OB Van was dispatched from here to Srinagar, while and a larger 10-HDTV Camera OB Van was moved to the location from Chennai. A 12-camera coverage was planned, with two more mounted on jimmy jib cranes. HD uplink was provided by a special van that was mounted with all facilities for linking with the AsiaSat-5 satellite. Extensive dry runs were carried out in the run-up to the event. The general shutdown was countered by a public communication campaign using advertisements, informing people of the live telecast on the DD network, including the state’s own channel, DD Kashir. A plan was also proposed to set up huge screens at strategic locations in Srinagar, to beam live pictures of the concert.

It was my very, very first concert. Is everybody going to dress up for the concert on Halloween night? Noah Alexander Bakker, Griffith A: Hello Noah, I am really glad that you came to your first concert. Congratulations! However, I want to make sure that you know the next concert is not on Halloween night but one week before that on Thursday, Oct. 24. ( Just tell your parents, OK? They know about that stuff.) The whole orchestra, chorus and youth orchestra will all be in costumes on the stage. We will be giving a few prizes for best costumes, so if you feel like dressing up, that is always OK, but you dont have too. You can dress however you like. Q: I attended the splendid Cirque de la Symphonie concert last month.
