For the second half of this evening exciting young soprano Honey Rouhani and violinist Emily Sun join Babak Kazemi and Light of Music Symphony Orchestra, which takes you to a new world where east and west merge together in world premiere of Babak’s violin concertino and his orchestral songs based on poems from remarkable Persian poets: Hafez and Rumi.

Ode to Peace is Light of Music’s tribute to worldwide peace
