Sustaining Sampradaya 2018

The Aradhana Committee continues its education series Sustaining Sampradaya, for its 12th year. Although the deadline for applying has passed, you can still view the announcement for applications.

This year, we once again feature two themed programs:

The Music of Dance

This year we celebrate the centenary of Smt. T. Balasaraswathi, one of the greatest dancers of all time. She revolutionized the performance of Bharathanatyam in combination with the deepest classical music, and was a key figure in promoting Indian art forms across the globe.

The music lessons for this program are available for download.

Tribute to M.L. Vasanthakumari

This program is dedicated to the memory of a spectacular musician who redefined what creativity could mean in the concert platform, and blazed a path for female musicians beyond the strictures of the society she lived in. Her career was cut short, but her legacy lives on in the form of generations of students in a rich musical lineage.
