We are proud to have partnered with Temple of Music (TOM), in presenting a COVID-19 Fundraiser Violin Duet, by Vidwan Ganesh and Vidwan Kumaresh. The concert helped in raising money for the deeply affected community of carnatic musicians. We extend our gratitude and thank our patrons who generously donated for this cause.
 
We will be hosting the 42nd Thyagaraja Aradhana Online Festival on February 6th. Follow our South India Fine Arts [SIFA] Facebook page and SIFA website for the event details. There are a few other online programs we are working on and will be posting those details very soon on our website and facebook page.
 
Due to the extraordinary circumstances posed by the ongoing Pandemic, it was decided by our board the SIFA election for 2021 will not take place. Srivatsan Kannan (President Elect 2020) will start serving as President in 2021. The current office bearers and board members will continue in their roles. Please visit Committee page for the 2021 committee details.
 
We look forward to your continued support.
