It was established to promote music among music lovers, encourage musicians, cultivation of knowledge of Hindu religion and devotion to god. Veteran performers and amateurs in this field give various performances. The building is in dilapidated condition now. The Sangeetha Sabha was started in 1920. The Government has given them vacant place measuring about 5,391 Square feet in TS no.322/10 of Vellore town. It was registered under Societies Registration Act on 16.12.1920. It is in a dilapidated condition at present. There are some office bearers, but they are not lawful because they were not elected according to the registered byelaws. At one stage the district administration had initiated proceedings to take back the above land, since the purpose for which it was given has not been served.
In such a stage, the present Collector intervened and decided to renovate the building and revive the Sangeetha Sabha, since its aims and objectives are something noble. With this idea, he has for the time being given up the proceedings of taking back the land. On written and oral representations from various corners and from the elderly people of Vellore town, he willingly agreed to their request and conducted a meeting of some important persons who have much knowledge about Sangeetha Sabha and its brilliant performances. This meeting was conducted under the chairmanship of the Collector, Mr. Siva kumar, I.A.S., on 20.12.2000 and heard the opinion of all the participants. Almost all of them have suggested to renovate the building in a fitting manner even at the cost of Rs.25- 30 lakhs but only under the chairmanship of the Collector. This meeting ended with the decision to find out ways and means to mobilize such huge amount of funds purely from the neutral public in the next meeting.
