As part of their 2017-2018 season, Space City Performing Arts presents a program featuring the classical music of India and performances on instruments such as tabla, sitar, harmonium, and voice.
Space City Performing Arts is partnering with Indian Music Society of Houston to present, Beyond the Horizon.
About Indian Music Society of Houston:
The Indian Music Society of Houston was established in 1992 by a group of classical music lovers. Their passion and love for the classical music of India prompted them to organize themselves into a nonprofit organization that brought world-class classical performing arts to our doorstep in Houston, in traditional style, to be enjoyed by connoisseur and amateur alike.
It is this commitment and dedication to preserve, promote and propagate the myriad of centuries-old classical music, both instrumental and vocal, that has driven the Indian Music Society to host the giants of the arts like Pandit Jasraj, Ustad Amjad Ali Khan, Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, Pt. Vishwa Mohan Bhat, Smt. Ashwini Bhide, Ustad Rashid Khan, as well as provide a platform to young, upcoming rising stars, who have gone on to make a name on the classical music horizon.
