These concerts are live, specially for the Members of both the Organisations.

You may send these particulars to the Sabha’s email (firstname.lastname@example.org) indicating the name and Life Membership / Annual Membership number.
The Trust has decided to postpone the Annual Music and Dance Festival as well as Purandara Award function which are normal held in January every year to the later part of the year 20201. As most of you aware, the sabha’s School of Performing Arts switched over to virtual Classes from September 1, 2020 and they are progressing very well. We also urge members and their children to avail the facility.
The Replacement of old roof sheets of Purandara Bhavana has been completed. The Construction of additional class room and open-air stage are in progress and is expected to be completed in April 2021.

35 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.
