Krutagnya is a charitable Trust instituted by Lalgudi Vijayalakshmi in the year 2014 with an objective of expressing gratitude for this life of music and learning. In line with this sentiment, Krutagnya conducts two events every year. The first event is the Violin Vaibhavam, held in January, in collaboration with the Lalgudi Trust (a non-profit organization managed by Shri G.J.R. Krishnan). This event showcases highly talented and budding violinists from various acclaimed banis, and provides a central platform for the violin. Violin Vaibhavam is 5 years old now. Four of thes events were conducted in Chennai, and one in Bengaluru.
Krutagnya also conducts a mid-year event, featuring informational presentations, lecture demonstrations, and interactive workshops by eminent musicians, musicologists, voxologists, Laya vidwans and other experts from related disciplines.
In the future, Krutagnya plans to extend its scope to reach quality music to senior citizens in old-age homes, children in orphanages, and to the needy in general. Admissions to all Krutagnya events are free. As Krutagnya moves forward, making quality music accessible to all, this mission can be accomplished better only from generous support and contributions from music lovers and enthusiasts.
Krutagnya has grown steadily in the last six years. Please address your questions and inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org, indicating your interest to support Krutagnya. We will reach out to you. Donations to the Trust are exempt under sec 80 G of the Income Tax Act.
