About

Vistaar is more than just a typical music society; we at Vistaar aim to achieve a lot more for everyone in the community around us through the medium of music. Starting from a small umbrella of clubs in 2014, we have grown into a 400+ member organization with 7 core performance teams, 5 running programs, 7 annual events and a dedicated administrative team creating a support system for all these entities. Our initiatives aim to cater to a broad range of interests and purposes for musicians and non-musicians alike.
