Instructions and Rules:

Sapthaswara is an initiative by RVCF to encourage students of Indian music, both vocal and instrumental.  The aim is to create enthusiasm among students to perform and give them an opportunity to be a good audience because a performer improves only on the encouragement of an appreciative audience. Knowledge of both sides of the stage is important for a collective enjoyment of the art form. Teachers are encouraged to model good concert habits by performing themselves.
