LearnQuest Academy of Music, a non-profit educational institution based in Waltham, MA, has been serving the community for the past 21 years.  The Academy offers music instruction to children and adults at three locations in the Boston area – Waltham, Acton,and Andover.  The Academy is supported by a group of dedicated faculty, committee members and volunteers who strive to foster and nurture the rich tradition of Indian classical music, both Hindustani and Carnatic, through formal instruction and by organizing workshops, concerts and music festivals.

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
