Major ITC-SRA Events

Western Regional Committee

  Arvind Parekh

ITC-SRA established the Western Regional Committee in Mumbai in 1981 to promote its objectives in the culturally rich territory around Maharastra and Gujarat. Under the inspiring leadership of Shri Arvind Parekh, a trustee of ITC-SRA, and an eminent musician and industrialist, the Western Regional Committee has left its indelible musical imprint in the western states.

Each year, two eminent artistes from the Western region are awarded the ITC Award from Mumbai. The two senior artistes selected for the awards are as far as possible, a vocalist and an instrumentalist. In addition, as part of its focus on the promotion of Indian Classical Music, the Committee has, since 1998, been awarding prizes to four promising young artistes selected from First Prize Winners of All India Radio Competitions. Two of the selected awardees are from the North Indian music system - one vocal and one instrumental and the remaining two are from the Carnatic music system.

Among its various activities, the Western Regional Committee also regularly broadcasts young talent in Hindustani music on All India Radio.
