Transplanting the Hindustani Classical Music Tradition

The Paranjapes continued to explore their interest in Western classical music, frequently attending recitals at the University's Convocation Hall. Mrs. Paranjape belonged to the informal choir of the Academic Women's Club, aptly named "Singing for Pleasure." She took more violin lessons and in 1962 played in a CBC symphony broadcast directed by Thomas Rolston. Following a score proved challenging to someone steeped in the Indian tradition of memory-based learning and performance.
