GLAC is the only organization in the USA boasting about 30 concerts every year under it's banner.  No other sabha/organization in North America can boast such a lineup!

The annual Navarathri festival during the month of October at the Bharatiya Hindu Temple in Troy, Michigan.
The 10 hour function includes the rendition of Navavarna Krithis, the performance of our community kids, and a
main concert in the evening and also helps in raising donation to the temple’s building expansion project.

2014 -- a retrospective!

In 2014, GLAC had 30+ (incl 10 white-label) concerts including Smt. Sudha Raghunathan and Sri.T.M.Krishna. No other organization in North America can boast such an amazing lineup!

As you know, the Great Lakes Aradhana Committee (GLAC) is a premier non-profit organization committed to preserving, presenting and promoting arts in the Great Lakes region.

As we come to an end of a successful 2014 season, we would like to thank you, the rasikas, without whom, we wouldn’t be striving so hard.

As a member, patron & supporter of GLAC, here are a few things you probably didn’t know about GLAC.
One of the oldest and largest organizations of its kind (30yrs in 2015, 2600 in mailing list)
Only organization in NA to bring over 30 events under its label (includes 10 white labels)
Only organization in NA to partner with top Universities, Museums, City and State govts
Run by team of passionate people bringing you the best North America has to offer
One of the few North American based organizations which is purely volunteer run


2015 is a going to be a landmark year for GLAC in so many ways:
30th year of the organization
25th year of Navarathri festival
5th year of SAROVAR and
10th year as a formal organization!

Also, in 2015, we are beginning our partnership with Dearborn and the Arab American National Museum. This unique partnership will be part of an effort to build bridges that span racial, cultural and ethnic divisions amongst the communities. With these goals in mind, we are planning a concert with the Museum's Public Programming to embraces all cultural art forms. Stay tuned to our website for details..

To recap our smashing 2014 season, we had 20+ concerts including Smt. Sudha Raghunathan and Sri.T.M.Krishna. No other organization in North America can boast such an amazing lineup!

None of this will be possible without your support. We hope to see you become a member in 2015 and also encourage you to DONATE online from our website to bring more concerts to Michigan. Every dollar you give is spent towards music enrichment in Michigan.
