How it Started!

Founded in 1993, the Classical Arts Society of Houston is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and maintaining the rich heritage of the classical performing arts of India. The founders of the Classical Arts Society are Smt. Indu Krishnamurty, Smt. Nalini Mukhopadhyay, Mrs. Nalini Mukhopadhyay and Smt. Prabha Bala.

38 years ago an ad-hoc group formed under the leadsetship of the late Mrs. Indu Krishnamurthy and started conducting the annual Sri Tyagaraja Music Festival in Spring of each year in the Houston area. This effort was formalized in 1993 with the formation of the Classical Arts Society of Houston. Following a few initial years the venue for this festival moved to the beautiful campus of the Meenakshi Temple in Pearland. The serene ambience of the temple has been an ideal location to host the annual Houston Tyagaraja Utsavan (Festival) over the year. The co-sponsorship of the Sri Meenakshi Temple Society is an added blessing. A full list of programs by high caliber artists presented at the Tyagaraja Festivals and other occasions are organized by this group.
