The Indian Classical Music Circle of Austin (ICMCA) is Austin’s premier organization for the promotion of Indian classical arts in the Central Texas area. Founded in 1991, ICMCA has, in its 25-year history, conducted 200+ concerts in Austin, with cumulative attendance at events exceeding 50,000 to date. We are a tax-exempt 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization with deep roots in Austin: we serve our community by expanding the artistic and cultural landscape of the ‘Live Music Capital of the World’.
ICMCA’s mission includes taking all Asian classical art forms deeper into the Central Texas community and enriching the cultural fabric of Austin. We constantly strive to make the Asian arts accessible to a larger audience by providing free or discounted tickets to senior citizens and students, delivering free workshops and lecture-demonstrations to under-served audiences, and partnering with the Ronald McDonald House
,VSA Arts of Texas
and many more charitable institutions.
ICMCA is funded and supported in part by the City of Austin through the Cultural Arts Division and by a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts and an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes that a great nation deserves great art. ICMCA also relies heavily on its strong membership base. With the support of our loyal patrons, we are able to bring concerts of the highest quality to Austin and to Central Texas.
