On Monday, Jan. 12, 2009, conductor Mathew is organizing his charity concert - "Mahler for the Children of AIDS," at Carnegie Hall. It will raise funds and public awareness for pediatric AIDS and the Prevention-of-Mother-To-Child Transmission (PMTCT) of HIV worldwide but especially in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa. The evening will "serve as a memorial for the millions of mothers and children who have lost their lives, a tribute to the resilience of the survivors, and an urgent call for help to the global community." SAJA presents a webcast with Mathew, two days before Christmas, to talk about the concert; the world of Western classical music; his efforts to raise interest in the form in the US and in India; and to discuss what it is like to be an Indian-American at the highest levels of this kind of music. See more about the concert and how you can support it (along with excerpts from Mahler's Third Symphony, which we will be playing during the webcast): http://bitly.com/mahler
