Due to the ongoing situation with COVID, all in person concerts and programs remain cancelled. At this point in time, we are not yet offering membership for 2021. Once concerts can be safely restarted, we will update our rasikas
Carnatic Music lovers of Long Island and the Five boroughs of New York, now have Shruti Laya to fulfill their dreams of listening to the favorite artists perform in their neighborhood!
The New York area has a large number of rasikas, with a deep interest in Carnatic music. It still gives them great pleasure to listen to this timeless music. Thanks to the many excellent teachers in this area, they are even able to ensure that their children learn this divine art.
Shruti Laya will strive to satisfy the musical needs of this group, with Great Performances by the masters of music, in our own neighbourhood, at a price we can afford. We will also provide a forum for local artists and children to perform on stage, and organize other music related programs.
The basic objective of Shruti Laya is the "promotion and propagation of Carnatic Musical and other closely related classical music and dance performing arts of India, especially among the second generation immigrants". We want to provide a feast of fine music to the adults, and also make sure that this divine art does not die out with our generation, by encouraging and educating our children to appreciate and perform Carnatic music.
We will keep prices low by spreading the costs over a large member base. ALL Shruti Laya programs will be free for children (18 and under).
Please support this venture. Join as a member of Shruti Laya, and help us bring Carnatic Music to New York.
