Endowment Concert & Medal

The Indira Sivasailam Endowment Medal and Concert is a special event in The Indira Sivasailam Foundation’s calendar. It is a celebration, of the Navaratri season – a time of the year great cherished by Smt. Indira Sivasailam, and of the talents of gifted Carnatic musicians – a cause Smt. Indira Sivasailam deeply believed in.

Held in association with The Music Academy, Madras, great care is taken while selecting the recipient of this award by an expert committee constituted by the Music Academy. The criteria for choosing the artist are, excellence in performance, audience appeal, adherence to classical tradition while innovating within its framework, depth and demonstrated efforts to disseminate knowledge and the ability to bring about a greater and deeper public appreciation of Carnatic Music.

For over eight decades now, The Music Academy has been a sanctuary for classical music and musicians. The Academy’s recognition and awards are among the most coveted by young and established artists alike.
