In pursuance of the above aims and objectives, the Trust has conducted state-wide competitions in classical music both vocal and instrumental (Veena and Violin). The competitions were held under the supervision of acknowledged experts in the field of classical music at several centres scattered all over the state. The competition was open to both boys and girls in the age group between 15 and 25 years and was open to all sections irrespective of caste, creed and religion. There was no entry fee for participating in the competition. The winners in the competition were given handsome cash prices as a measure of encouragement and also to meet their expenditure to participate in the competition. The competitions were held on 2nd, 3rd and 4th of May, 2008 at Thyagaraya Gana Sabha, Chikkadapalli, Hyderabad. Such competitions will be conducted every year henceforth. The trust also provided a platform for young artists to perform in the first series of programme held at the above dates. The young artists could share the platform along with senior artists who performed late in the evening.

The second series of the programme conducted was on 26th October, 2008 exclusively in the memory of Sri Muttuswamy Deekshitair, one of the musical legends. A number of young artists have been provided an opportunity to perform and the artists have been paid honorarium. The main artists and the accompanying artists were all young with good potential and they have been selected by Potti Sriramulu Telugu University, Hyderabad to ensure that the selection was done without any bias and the artists so selected possessed high level of knowledge and skills with potential to grow in to sound artists in Carnatic music.

From the above, it is clear that the programmes sub-serve the objectives for which purpose the trust has been formed. It is further to be noted that the two series of concerts so far conducted by the trust have also made the felt-need of the public to listen to and appreciate the classical music and dance.
