ITC-SRA's call has been to inspire students with an inner sense of mission in music and to foster the creative exploration of this great genre of music through the Guru-Shishya Parampara. Our scholars have been chosen from all over the country after careful screening and they come to the Academy to fulfil the commitment to become a performing musician. Spurred on by a creative fervour, the metamorphosis begins at the feet of the guru as the mystery of a raga unfolds.

As part of the training process, each student is required to perform at the weekly Wednesday Recitals. The recital plays a pivotal role in the training of our scholars as it is aimed at moulding an artist as a performer. After a scholar matures in his or her art and performance skills, he or she is presented to the public through the ITC Sangeet Sammelans.
