Thank you for your interest in the 2020 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.
The competition will be held between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM on March 21, 2020.
Registration begins on January 18th and ends on March 1st, 2020.
Age categories and reporting times will be posted on the website by March 9th, 2020.
