Sri Chinmoy has offered hundreds of concerts to tens of thousands of people around the globe. Beginning as a twenty-concert series in March 1984, the total has reached a monumental 777 concerts offered in 62 nations on six continents.
Selecting from his 21,000 compositions, Sri Chinmoy sings with a strikingly resonant voice, accompanying himself on keyboards and select stringed instruments. He also performs on his principle instruments the flute, esraj and cello as well as on a wide variety of Eastern and Western woodwind, string and percussive instruments. His soul-stirring, haunting music leaves a lingering presence in the listener's heart long after the concert ends. In 1987 Sri Chinmoy began infusing his concerts with the power and grandeur of piano and pipe organ improvisations he now has added virtuoso violin and esraj improvisations to this standard repertoire.
Sri Chinmoy has offered concerts ranging from a colossal audience of 19,000 in Montreal, Canada, to private concerts for Heads of State; from New York's Carnegie Hall, Paris' Carrousel du Louvre and Moscow's State Central Concert Hall to China's Great Wall and Japan's Hiroshima; The Vatican, Indonesia's Borobudur and Japan's Kamakura Great Buddha.
