The Faculty of Performing Arts at MSU has its roots in
the Bharatiya Sangita Vidyalaya, founded by the Late Maharaja Sayajirao
of Baroda in 1886, and through his patronage this institution, perhaps
the oldest of its kind in India, has served the course of Fine Arts for
the last 100 years. The late Khansaheb Fayyaz Khan who was one of the
professors of Vocal Music has left his legacy of art with his pupils and
the institution today specialises in the teaching of the Agra Gharana
style, as well as the Kirana and the Amanali Gharana styles to advanced
students. After the Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda was
established in 1950 the Bharatiya Sangit Vidyalaya developed into a fullfledged
college and the educational programmes have been made more comprehensive.
The Faculty of Fine Arts was formally established in 1984.
