Cleveland Thyagaraja Festival

Cleveland, OH 44101

About Us

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 (tax ID 34-1806829).

The president of the Aradhana Committee is R. Balasubramaniam. Affectionately known to many Carnatic music rasikas as Cleveland Balu, he has been serving the Aradhana Committee and since the inception of the Cleveland Thyagaraja Festival more than 20 years ago. He has worked closely with organizers throughout the country and has arranged tours for almost every well-known Carnatic musician in India.

The Aradhana Committee works closely with and depends heavily on volunteers drawn from the greater Cleveland area and beyond in order to manage the festival.
