Chicago Tyagaraja Utsavam (CTU) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting Carnatic music in the USA. We actively support students, teachers and amateurs of all ages in the midwest to learn, perform, master and propagate this classical art which is at once ancient and contemporary.

We take pride in the talented youngsters who have blossomed into artists of high caliber, and are performing in prestigious venues worldwide

Throughout the year, CTU also sponsors high quality concerts by visiting artists from India as well as by artists based in the USA.
