But the auditorium where Zubin Mehta performed last year and where I attended my first concert last month is a stone's throw away from my house.

I noticed Bangalore has this (maybe) classical radio station at 100.1.
Away from the PC, you can hear this classical music station in digital quality throughout your region of the world.

I found the music mezmerising and soothing, yet strangely invigorating. He gave us a quick lesson on "Classical" music and described the various ragas etc. as being the true classical music of India. Do you hear a lot of that being broadcast?

Yes, World Space is quite popular, but I don't think I'll be listening to most of the other channels. It requires a seperate receiver and subscription...I could spend that on some quality CD's.
I heard this morning that India now has it's First Symphony Orchestra.
Missed what city....
