“Music is very essential for intellectual , emotional & spiritual development of mankind - L Subramaniam”
In 2005, violin icon Dr. L Subramaniam and Bollywood playback legend Kavita Krishnamurti Subramaniam started The Subramaniam Foundation.
The foundation is a registered charitable trust. The donations made to the foundation are exempt under 80G and corporate donations also qualify under the CSR funding. We believe in the power of music to affect change, and believe that everyone deserves access to it. To make this happen, the Subramaniam Foundation engages in these primary activities:
Lakshminarayana Global Music Festival (LGMF)
Lakshminarayana Global Centre of Excellence (LGCE)
Dr. L Subramaniam started the LGMF in 1992, in memory of his father and guru, Professor V Lakshminarayana. Its central idea is to give everyone a chance to enjoy diverse musical styles. To that end, the festival showcases some of the world’s best artists, and presents live concerts that are free and open to all. So far, millions of listeners from over 22 countries have attended.
“Every child should get the opportunity to listen or learn music and benefit from that. - L Subramaniam”
The LGCE is on a path to shape higher education in music in India. To that end, it offers BA honors and MA courses with global music as a subject along with top institutes like Jain University and Vishwakarma University. The goal of the LGCE is to offer the highest form of training which focuses on performance and music education.
