The prime objective of Sangeet Ashram is to increase the appreciation of Hindustani classical music, improve levels of 'listenership' and promote worthy musicians.
Over the years Sangeet Ashram has developed a reputation of presenting music programmes which are not only of the highest quality but also educate and inform the audience about the lesser known aspects of Indian classical music.
