|Welcome to Sangeetalahari. |
Sangeetalahari is a volunteer organization formed in 2001, whose sole purpose is to generate and nurture interest in Indian classical music, focusing primarily on the younger generation.
Sangeetalahari feels strongly that, an appreciation for the Indian classical music fosters an alternative lifestyle which promotes serenity, discipline and adherence to divine principles in children's lives.
The goals of Sangeetalahari are..
- To instill love for Indian classical music.
- To stress discipline and punctuality.
- To foster team spirit and promote the value of learning from ech another.
- To promote music as a form of relaxation.
Sangeetalahari contacted local musicians and gathered information on all the accomplished artists and teachers in the Washington D.C. Metropolitan area. With their support and participation, the first Thyagaraja Araadhana was conducted January 13th, 2001, in Northern Virginia. It was a great success and brought with it lots of encouragement to Sangeetalahari. With enthusiasm, Sangeetalahari', currently conducts an annual Trinity Music Festival for experienced artists to showcase their talents and a Children's Day Celebration for children under 18 years of age to develop their musical and artistic talents, even further.
Since Jan 13th, 2001, music lovers have enjoyed performing and listening at the Sangeetalahari performances in the D.C. Metro Area. This success has made Sangeetalahari volunteers feel that their mission is being accomplished.
