for general operating support  
Ali Akbar College of Music teaches traditional North Indian classical music. Since 1967, the organization has trained thousands of students, and educated audiences through public concerts and recordings of master Ali Akbar Khan. Following Maestro Khan’s passing in 2009, the organization continues to experience demand for its classes and concerts, led by the maestro’s master disciples. Renewed funding will support the organization’s efforts to maintain classes for novice to advanced students; increase the resources it offers through a newly adopted online education platform; and maintain the Ali Akbar Khan Library, a publicly accessible archive that opened in 2015.
