Vignana Samithi, which is in its 33rd year of existence, tries to propagate classical music by organising music concerts every month. It provides a platform for upcoming artistes by giving opportunities, and at the same time, gets senior artistes to perform and conduct workshops. Many senior artistes have performed for the organisation, including Dr. Balamurali Krishna, the Malladi Brothers, the Hyderabad Brothers and Sankaranarayanan.
