Indiranagar Sangeetha Sabha is situated in Indiranagar Bangalore, also known as the IT Capital of India. Bangalore, the capital of Karnataka boasts of a rich cultural tradition which has traditionally anchored music dance and drama. With this background the Sabha, since its founding in early 1986, has actively engaged itself in the promotion of classical music and dance. A registered trust that was authored by Late Sri A. Alagappan, a leading industrialist and a band of dedicated trustees, the Sabha currently has over 650 members. For more than 32 years, the Sabha has been instrumental in fulfilling the cultural aspirations in the eastern part of Bangalore city.
The activities of the institution can be classed under the following categories:
• Conducting Monthly Programmes
• Organising an annual festival of music and dance
• Holding National and International conferences
• Operation of School of Performing Arts
• Conducting workshops and special events
32 years in the history of an institution is but a drop in the ocean of time. Nevertheless, the trustees can feel justifiably proud of the strides that the Sabha has made over these three decades. It is one of the few institutions of its kind in Bangalore which has succeeded in constructing a cultural centre of its own to house all its activities. It has also succeeded in providing a platform both for renowned and established artists as well as promising talent. The coming years should see further growth in various facets of the Sabha's activities.
