Many of you have asked us how you can help Nandalala Mission, and the concert series in particular. Your tax deductible donations help us host these kinds of programs, as well as our other community services.

We would also like to suggest another easy, unique way you can support Nandalala Mission – Please donate a Safeway gift card (no amount is too small!) – this will be used to support our “Balakrishna Project” – supplying a family homeless shelter in Fremont with much needed milk (YES!) and butter. We can provide you the tax-deductible receipt for this as well.

Concert followed by: Performances of students of music interested in performing before a live audience. One piece per child.

This is being organized by Nandalala Mission to provide a forum for youth to perform before a live audience.

Performances will be given by youth trained in any form of music or dance. Each performance will be for one hour. A participant may perform for one hour or two participants may perform for 30minutes each.

Interested music / dance schools / teachers may contact Nandalala Mission at the number given below. Concerts will generally be once a month, on a Sunday afternoon.
