A very Happy, Prosperous, Melodious, and Musical New Year 2023!
Bharatiya Sangeetha Sangham (BSS) comes together this year with musical treats.
It is our pleasure to introduce ourselves as the new Bharatiya Sangeetha Sangham (BSS) committee for the upcoming year:
Balaji Kaushik, as President
Meenakshi Gowrishanker, as Vice-President
Mukund Iyer Rajamony, as Treasurer
Yamuna Devi Duraichelvan, as Secretary
Rupa Pillai, as Technical Director
Sreekanth Marti, as Director – Logistics & Operations
Sivakumar Narayanswamy, as Director – Logistics & Operations
Vidhya Chellappa, as Director – Logistics & Operations
Sriraman Rajagopalan, as Director – Logistics & Operations
We thank the previous committee members who have done a fantastic job. It was a year of transition and experimentation where we tried a hybrid approach over a variety of programs which were efficiently managed and executed with great support from all of you.
We thank all our patrons and donors for your support and dedication to preserving and promoting Indian classical culture. Your contributions, both financial and in the form of your time and talents, are greatly appreciated and have helped us to further our mission of sharing the beauty and richness of this timeless art form with others.
As a member or donor, you are an integral part of our organization, and we value your involvement. We hope you will take advantage of our many opportunities to learn, participate, and engage with our community. Whether it is through attending performances, workshops, or simply connecting with other like-minded individuals, we encourage you to get involved.
In the past couple of years, most of the programs were virtual because of the restrictions in holding in-person events due to COVID. This allowed us to have a Donor Seasons Pass that was priced lower. But we all know inflation has crept up on us without warning as we all move towards pre-pandemic normalcy. In order to support the programming for 2023, we have been forced to revise our minimum Seasons Donor Pass structure as follows:
Family (two adults and three children): $200
Single Adult: $100
We request music and dance teachers to encourage their students to join our rich cultural community. Teachers, please reach out to us if you have more than 20 students from your institute who would like to obtain the Annual Donor Pass.
There are multiple ways to donate:
– e-transfer to email@example.com
– instant donate at http://www.bssmontreal.org/donate/ (please note that a small processing fee is charged for this method)
– via cheque Payable to ‘Bharatiya Sangeetha Sangam’ 3551 Boul. St. Charles, Suite 158. KIRKLAND, Quebec, H9H 3C4
– reach out to a BSS executive committee member
We look forward to working with you and sharing in the joy and appreciation of Indian classical culture. Thank you again for your support and we look forward to having you all join us for another wonderful year of music, dance, arts, and culture.
President, BSS Montreal
