S. Tyagaraja Rao Memorial Children’s Music Competition
Registration will begin on January 15th, 2019
Thank you for your interest in the 2019 Children’s Music Competition.
In order to encourage children in the community who learn Carnatic music and have an opportunity to showcase talented youngsters, Dhvani organizes a competition event. The competition is held each year in fond memory of our charming friend and mentor, the late Sri S. Tyagaraja Rao. Rao mama was an indefatigable connoisseur of Carnatic Music as well as an ardent supporter of children’s music. In his memory we dedicate ourselves to keeping this art form alive in our minds and hearts.
The competition is judged by a group of professional Carnatic musicians invited specially for this occasion. The individual singing is followed by an awards ceremony and concert for the children. Children come from as far as Detroit, Pittsburgh, Washington DC and New Jersey to participate in this event. We encourage parents and children to think of this as an opportunity to share and learn more than to compete and win. We think of all our participants as winners.
Registration will begin on January 15th, 2019 and end on March 3rd, 2019
The competition will be held between 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM on April 6th, 2019
