bulletFirst timers & children will be given preference
bulletWe welcome rare krithis and ragas, no varnams please
bulletEach participant will be allowed to participate in only one event (A solo vocalist can't join for another group session)
bulletIf several children are singing the same Krithi and are learning from the same teacher, we may request very young participants to form small groups of 2 to 3 to increase overall participation.
bulletKrithis have to be rendered without Alapanai or Neraval or Kalpanaswarams since the time limit for each participant is 4 minutes.
bulletParticipants who missed their time slot will be accommodated at the end ONLY if time permits.

Registrations: FREE for members


Since this is an annual temple fundraiser, and to be fair to everyone, we have instated a small token donation.  Your contribution will slightly offset the cost of the all day event with food, fun & music for the whole family.  A nominal contribution of $25 per family will be collected on site.  All proceeds go towards the Annual GLAC Bharatiya Temple Navaratri Fundraiser. 

You will be redirected to the Registration page after payment is done.

      The whole day of Navarathri Program food and festivities have always been offered FREE for almost three decades.

      Your generous donations are always welcome on the day of the program. All donations will be tax deductible and the proceeds from the day will be donated to The Bharatiya Temple, Troy, Michigan. This year, we have made the process easier and are pleased to offer Online Donations from the GLAC homepage!  You can donate using your credit card from the comfort of your own home.
