Celebrating Resilience: Music by Iranian Bahá'ís Past

Sunday, Apr 2, 2017 - Chicago, IL, United States

Free Event

The fourth annual "Celebrating Resilience: Music by Iranian Bahá'ís" celebrates the music and resilience of Iranian Bahá'í composers living in the US and Canada. Their music celebrates Persian culture and tells the stories of the composers' resilience in the face of systemic persecution by Iranian authorities: risking raids and imprisonment to study and teach music, and honoring lost and imprisoned family members.
The concert will include piano trios by Farid Javidan, Nikan Milani, and Safa Shahidi, Persian folk song arrangements by Shahidi, and a world premiere string duo by Badie Khaleghian, who will be in attendance.
The music will be performed by Marianne Parker, piano, Maya Shiraishi, violin, and Tom Clowes, cello.
The concert is free and open to the public.
This concert is made possible in part through funding from the Cliff Dwellers Arts Foundation.
