The Indian Music Society of Houston was established in 1992 by a group of classical music lovers whose passion and love for the classical music of India, prompted them to organize themselves into a non profit organization that brought world class classical performing arts to our doorstep in Houston, in traditional style, to be enjoyed by connoisseur and amateur alike.
It is this commitment and dedication to preserve, promote and propagate the myriad of centuries old classical music, both instrumental and vocal, that has driven the Indian Music Society to host the giants of the arts like Pandit Jasraj, Ustad Amjad Ali Khan, Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, Pt. Vishwa Mohan Bhat, Smt. Ashwini Bhide, Ustad Rashid Khan, as well as provide a platform to young, upcoming rising stars, who have gone on to make a name on the classical music horizon.
Mission Statement: To promote the classical music arts of India in Houston.
GOALS & OBJECTIVES: Preserve and promote the arts through the presentation of performances by world class caliber artistes, as well as through various workshops and performances by local talent within the Indo American community as well as outreach to the mainstream community to build an awareness and appreciation of our exceptional classical music heritage.
BOARD OF DIRECTORS: consists of an all volunteer Board that strives to uphold its goals and objectives. These are people from varied walks of life for whom music is a passion.
MEMBERSHIP: can be obtained by paying a fee of $150.00 per calendar year that entitles each member to 8 passes that can be used towards any show during the year. Some events may have a limit on the number of passes that can be used.
