• Our history

  • The Delhi Music Society (DMS) is a voluntary, non-profit organisation devoted to the dissemination and enjoyment of music, especially western classical music. It was registered under the Societies Registration Act 1860-Regd. No. S-690 of 1953-54.

    Over the years, many eminent persons have been associated with the Society as office bearers and active members. They include Rakjumari Amrit Kaur, Mrs Indira Gandhi, Dr. Narayana Menon, Dr. Karan Singh, Mrs. Pushpa Hidayatullah and Sardar Amarjit Singh, among others. The Delhi School of Music, established by the Delhi Music Society in 1966, is currently the premier institution for the teaching of western classical music in the Capital.

    The Society collaborates with institutions such as the Indian Council for Cultural Relations, the India International Centre, the India Habitat Centre and cultural divisions/organisations of various foreign missions. It also sponsors and presents its own concerts. By networking with music societies in Pune, Mumbai, Goa, Calcutta and Bangalore, the Society sometimes arranges all-India tours for visiting artistes. Many internationally reputed performers from all over the world have been presented by the Society over the last five and a half decades.

Coping with Covid-19

The Covid-19 pandemic has inevitably affected both live performances organised by the Delhi Music Society and the teaching programme of the Delhi School of Music. We hope that we will be able to revive concerts and lec-dems once conditions improve. However, the School has made all efforts to keep musical education alive despite the challenges of the pandemic. Online classes were started in May and are on ongoing. Teachers and students have responded well to this possibility, with more than a thousand students currently engaged in the online classes. The School will also take new admissions for those willing to take classes online during this period.
