Nadasurabhi has today grown to be one of the premier carnatic music sabhas in Bangalore. With more than 700 life  members, the organization has been growing rapidly in recent years. Artists, members, rasikas and the press have been highly appreciative of the quality of concerts conducted by Nadasurabhi.

Karnataka Fine Arts Council (KFAC): In the year 2013, Nadasurabhi and nine other leading music sabhas of Bangalore joined hands to form KFAC. This is a unique federation formed for the development of Carnatic Music and other Indian Classical Fine Arts. Grand Youth Festivals named "Kalavanta" were held in the month of May in both 2014 and 2015. The festival featured 14 concerts of young artists. The best performers were chosen by a panel of eminent judges and were awarded the title of Kalavanta along with cash prizes. Many more programmes are in the anvil. 

For further growth and improvement Nadasurabhi would love to have your suggestions sent through Feedback/Suggestions.
