To promote Music as a whole Violin Academy began Swarazankar Music Festival in 2009 in Pune. The main objective is to enable common music lovers to listen to legendary artists of all Gharanas, all types of instruments and to stage those artists who have not ( or rarely ) performed. We also organise interaction of our students with these legendary maestros to help them better understand the rich tradition of the Indian Classical Music.
We started this festival in Pune, and now after more than 7 years of successful organization, we are carrying out this fragrance to Aurangabad, Nasik, Kolhapur, Mumbai, Solapur, Ratnagiri, Jalgaon, Latur, Nagpur, Amravati, Akola, Pandharpur, Satara and Ahmednagar in Maharashtra and also at Baroda, Indore, Belgaum, Mysore, Dharwad and Bangalore outside Maharashtra. The festivals have been a huge success and it is only fair to say that our organisation is privileged to be associated with all the great artists of Indian Classical Music.
Due to organisational efforts taken by Violin Academy, legendary artists such as Pt. Shivkumar Sharma, Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasia, Pt. Ajoy Chakraborty, Ustad Zakir Hussain, Begum Parveen Sultana , Hariharan, Sivamani, Pt. Vishwamohan Bhatt, along with the youth icons such as Rahul Sharma, Kaushiki Chakraborty, Sanjeev Abhyankar have been a part of our SwaraZankar Music Festivals every year.
In the past 10 years, our SwaraZankar Music Festival has grown leaps and bounds and all these festivals are conducted with a sole purpose and effort of Promoting and preserving our traditional Indian Classical Music. Till date we have been successful in reaching to more 1 Lakh people every year and the festivals are increasing day by day and soon we are planning to conduct these festivals in United States, Europe and Singapore.
