Let me begin with the history of this music festival at UCLA. Avartan music festival was started three years back by extremely talented Indian American kids to celebrate and cherish Indian classical music that they have learnt right from childhood with utmost dedication,sincerity and passion. This one day festival is a presentation of both Carnatic and Hindustani style of music. Talented musicians from various parts of the United States are invited to perform.
The organizers begin the ground work two months before the event, starting from artist selection,donors, invites, websites,ads, food etc. All these performers display high degree of professionalism by sharing their ideas and working together to make this event successful.

- Pursuing an Indian art form in a western country is a true blessing. These children take it seriously , work on it with 100% dedication,perfection and perseverance. This attitude keeps them successful throughout their life.
- Each performance is a learning experience. These kind of opportunities definitely help them improve their presentation skills.

What does the Audience gain from the event?
- Listening is a part of learning music.Kids learning music must listen to live concerts to understand the greatness of the art form.

- Attending such great events is a wonderful opportunity for our kids to visit prestigious institutions and motivate our kids to organize such events in future.
