The Academy has been organizing an Annual Music Conference since 2006 – a festival of Indian classical music at Regis College in Weston, MA and other venues in the greater Boston area.

More than 50 artists in about 15 concerts are showcased in this 5-day annual event. Concerts in both Hindustani and Carnatic music styles featuring some the best musicians, from maestros to rising young stars, covering a wide range of musical instruments and styles are presented. The Conference also has an educational component to promote the appreciation of Indian classical music through lecture-demonstrations, films and workshops. The festival attracts audiences from all over the USA who revel in the awe-inspiring beauty, legacy and vivacity of Indian classical music. Some regard it as one of the largest Indian Classical Music conferences of its kind in North America.

We regretfully inform you that the 15th Annual Learnquest Music Conference will not take place on March 27-29, 2020. The growing and unpredictable spread of COVID-19 has made it impossible to assess safety risks. We have been monitoring the situation and contemplating measures to keep the artists and music enthusiasts safe. On March 10, however, the State of Massachusetts has declared a public health emergency that gives us no choice but to cancel the event.

We recognize the hard work and travel that so many have put in preparing for the event. We feel sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you, and will start refunding the concert tickets. Once the situation has abated, we will take stock of options and communicate further. We look forward to seeing you soon and thank you for your continuing support. With prayers for your health and safety,

- The LearnQuest team
