Thanks to the efforts of MITHAS (Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Heritage of the Arts of Southasia), audiences around the Boston area can continue to enjoy fine performances of Hindustani and Carnatic classical music on a regular basis. This dedicated cultural organization, founded in 1993, centers its activities around the promotion of the classical performing arts primarily from India, including music, dance and theater, thus connecting performers of these genres with the enthusiastic audiences they seek. To date, they have produced over 100 concerts and other events, meanwhile bringing to the Boston area premier artists not only from India but other regions from around the world as well. In addition to individual performances, MITHAS also sponsors lecture demonstrations, classes, symposium, and more. All events take place either at MIT or various other venues around the local area.

The regular entertainment season consists of 2 concert series, one in the fall ( generally, August -November) and the other in the spring (generally, April – June). There are usually 4 t0 6 concerts or special events in each series. Check out the fall schedule now, including additional special events … and it gets better yet! MITHAS is associated with other partner organizations and, as a result, maintains a listing of additional cultural events on their web site.  In order to gain free access to MITHAS’s select “exclusive concerts”, you can become a member of the organization. There are many categories of membership to choose from, each with its own set of benefits.
