The Luang Pradit Phairoh Foundation (Sorn Silapabanleng) is organising its annual wai khru ceremony to pay homage to music masters at the foundation's Luen Banleng building this Sunday from 9am.
Chanting the sacred wai khru text will be master Chalak Posamton, while masters Uthai Kaewla-iad and Sanoh Luangsunthorn will help apply the white paste on to the foreheads of participants as a gesture of blessing.
Meanwhile, a special exhibition on the life and works of the late Prasidh Silpabanleng, eldest son of Luang Pradit Phairoh and National Artist, will take place at the event to mark the 100th anniversary of the famed composer and musician's birth. There will be two commemorative concerts featuring the maestro's orchestral masterpieces including Siang Tian and Cherd Nai, at Chulalongkorn University's Cultural Centre and the National Theatre, on Sept 2 and Sept 8, respectively. Those interested in the concerts can make reservations at the wai khru ceremony. Admission is free.
