Cleveland Thyagaraja Festival

The Cleveland Thyagaraja Festival is the largest Indian classical music festival outside of India. It was first celebrated in 1978 and has now grown to be a 12-day festival with more than 8,000 attendees with 2,000 appearing for the opening weekend.

The Aradhana Committee is a group of volunteers who spearhead the planning and organization of the Cleveland Thyagaraja Festival. They work closely with various other Carnatic music organizations in the United States and Canada to bring artists to Cleveland for the festival.

We are organized as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
