Pandit Jasraj Institute of Music (PJIM) is pleased to announce Rising Stars 2020 - an endeavor designed to bring together senior students of Hindustani vocal music from all schools in the tri-state area and to give them a forum to perform, listen and derive inspiration from each other. The mission is to develop a musical community that seeks to build their musicality, inspire and be inspired, without the boundaries of gharanas or schools.
The Institute hopes to build on the success of last year's event and seeks the involvement of all the area music schools and organizations in this day event intended to provide a pathway for serious students of Hindustani vocal while providing inspiration to aspiring students and to developing an audience for the same. This event is not a competition, however, four people will be selected from among the nominees to present at the Rising Stars event in 2020. Past years judges and performers
Collaborative forum and the need for Volunteers We intend to make "Rising Stars" a collaborative forum where schools and educators within the Tri-state area come together to promote talent in Hindustani classical music. In order to accomplish this, we would need your support and cooperation. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in volunteering so that we can take this initiative forward as a community. Any type of volunteering will be appreciated ranging from sharing your ideas to helping with promotions to providing logistical support on the day of the event.
