Begun in the late 1980s, the HCL concert series is as the name suggests, sponsored by HCL Limited. It involves a monthly concert, each one featuring a young and upcoming artiste. Besides, there is one annual concert that features a star Carnatic performer. The junior concerts are in particular considered a springboard for recognition in the classical music world.
