Concert Description

Join Intersection as we experience vibrant music composed and inspired by Kurdish and Persian culture. From the Ancient Valley will feature three visiting musicians – Persian composer and instrumentalist Shahab Paranj playing the Tombak, a Persian drum, Reza Vali, an Iranian composer, and acclaimed mezzo-soprano Janna Baty - alongside Intersection musicians and local Kurdish artists. The program will feature Reza Vali's Folk Songs performed by Ms. Baty known for her recording of the work with the Boston Modern Orchestra Project. Shahab will perform virtuoso percussive works exploring Persian and Kurdish percussion and will guide us through several of his compositions for Western instruments. Other works include pieces by Persian composer Behzad Ranjbaran and Henry Cowell's "Persian Set". The Saturday afternoon performance will be designed especially for families and children with an engaging musical program and increased audience interaction.
