*** Virtual Indian Classical Concert Series ***


Welcome to the e-home of IMSOM, the premier Indian arts and cultural organization in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul, MN. Through these pages we hope to bring you regular and up-to-date information on IMSOM's activities.

The ongoing situation with COVID-19 has impacted each and every one of us in profound ways. At IMSOM we are particularly aware that in times such as these, music can, indeed, be a great healer. Thus, while the current crisis has left our regular concert season in limbo, it has only fortified our resolve to bring you the best in Indian classical music - to entertain, to educate, to nourish the soul, and to lift your spirits, while bringing communities together.  We thank you and hope to spot you in large numbers at our online concerts.

!!IMSOM is pleased to announce the launch of IMSOM’s new and exciting online concerts for the Fall/Winter season!!

We recently introduced all of you to the online format we will be using for most of the planned events (Jayateerth Mevundi, Sept 12, and Kaushiki Chakraborty, Sept 26). With these events we also launched our new, user-friendly, membership drive. We hope many of you took advantage of the offer of free concerts to renew your membership or become new members. For the upcoming season we plan to present eight concerts – four Carnatic and four Hindustani.

For more than 40 years, IMSOM has been bringing the best in Indian classical music to the Twin Cities and fostering a greater understanding between people of different cultures. To celebrate this, we have brought out a set of four CDs, two each of Hindustani and Carnatic music, containing vocal and instrumental excerpts of live recordings selected from past concerts of IMSOM. Please take this opportunity to purchase this set.

In the face of great arts funding adversity, IMSOM has prevailed and existed longer than any other Indian arts organization in the Twin Cities. IMSOM is consistently growing into a valuable resource for not only the Indian community, but also for the Twin Cities' arts community at large. This year's concert series, like in previous years, has become an important part of the Twin Cities' arts calendar.

We invite you to join us in the presentation and promotion of Indian classical music in the Twin Cities and hope to see you at our future concerts.
