Hindustani Concerts in Chennai

In the past, a few of us have informally discussed the creation of an organization to bring more Hindustani music concerts to Chennai. We have begun working on this idea in earnest now and come up with following rough outlines for this organization:

  1. It will be run primarily using subscription funds paid at the beginning of the financial year, although we are not averse to small unobtrusive sponsorships. The dues will be in the neighbourhood of Rs. 5000/year and will entitle a family to attend all concerts organized during the year. We will start activities with a half-year’s subscription to take us through to March 31, 2014, and then move over to full subscription years thereafter.
  2. The number of concerts organized will depend on the number of subscribers, but at the minimum, we will need 40 subscriptions, which will enable 4 concerts per year. 
  3. Concerts will be held both inside and outside IIT Madras; the ones inside will be held during the semester so that students can attend.
  4. The organization will be registered, most likely, as a society, and its operation will be completely transparent and accounts will be audited yearly as required by law.

The purpose of this post is to get a preliminary headcount, so please fill in this form to let us know that you are interested. And please forward this link to others who may be interested. Thanks!
