Chandrika Tandon Concert to Benefit 1000 Maharishi Vedic Pandits Launches Global Peace Initiative

Chandrika Krishnamurthy Tandon, a 2011 Grammy nominee for world music, will perform a benefit concert Sunday, November 6, at the Sondheim Center for the Performing Arts in Fairfield, Iowa, as the grand finale of the Vedic Visitors Weekend taking place November 4-7.

Sponsored by the Global Peace Initiative, the Vedic Visitors Weekend will offer influential Indo-American leaders a taste of one of the most Vedic communities in North America — Maharishi Vedic City, just north of the campus of Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa.

“This special concert will launch the Global Peace Initiative, an intensified global effort to establish large, permanent groups of Maharishi Vedic Pandits in India and America,” said Raja John Hagelin. “These two groups will create an unshakable foundation for lasting peace and the fulfillment of Maharishi’s great legacy for the world.”

A world-renowned performer, Ms. Tandon is known for music that celebrates the grace in our innermost selves. The concert will be a major production, with Ms. Tandon bringing her seven-piece ensemble from New York City.

She will also be joined by some of Fairfield’s finest musicians, including Rick Stanley, Tim Britton, Werner Elmker, and more.

“Chandrika’s soulful and refined music matches the expansive mission of the Global Peace Initiative,” said event producer Michael Sternfeld. Ms. Tandon was trained by masters in Hindustani, Carnatic, South American, and jazz traditions. Her album Soul Call has topped world music charts and garnered great acclaim, including a Grammy nomination.

Ms. Tandon was recently instructed in the Transcendental Meditation program. Proceeds from the concert will go to help support the Vedic Pandits.

“This event also presents a special opportunity for our community to express their heartfelt appreciation to the Maharishi Vedic Pandits for all they do to nourish our community and the world on so many levels,” said Maureen Wynne, chief development officer of the Global Peace Initiative.

The concert will be Sunday, November 6, at 7:45 p.m. at the Sondheim Center for the Performing Arts in the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center.

General admission is $15, and $8 for MUM students, faculty, and staff. Tickets are available at the Sondheim box office, online at http://www.FairfieldACC.com, and by phone at 641-472-2787.

Dozens of Indo-American leaders are expected for the weekend. They will enjoy a tour of Maharishi Vedic City, including Maharishi Vastu® homes, the Maharishi Vedic Observatory™, and the Maharishi Vedic Organic AgricultureSM  program.

They will also visit the Maharishi Vedic Pandit campus and have the opportunity to attend classes at Maharishi University of Management.
