The Indian Music Society of Houston

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, Pt. Hari Prasad Chaurasia, Ustad Amjad Ali Khan, Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, Dr. N Rajam, Pt. Ulhas Kashalkar, Pts. Rajan and Sajan Misra, Pt. Vishwa Mohan Bhat, Smt. Ashwini Bhide, Ustad Rashid Khan, Pt. Kishan Maharaj, Pt. Kumar Bose, Pt. Anindo Chatterjee, Pt. Yogesh Samsi, Kaushiki Chakraborty, Arati Ankalikar Tikekar, Kartik Kumar, and scores of other established and young artists during the span of 30 years.

Since inception, we have organized over 240 concerts, in addition to scores of concerts in a ghar-baithak setting.
