An Evening of

Persian Classical Music

After many attempts to bring to our music series one of my favorite music genres, The Classical Music of Iran, known as RADIF.

I'm very delighted to host a concert featuring two of Iran younger generation of musicians who carry on this great musical tradition and are on the forefront of its constant evolution.

Behfar Bahadoran is a musician from Iran and holds his bachelor degree in FineArts from Maryland Institute College of Art. He moved to the United States in 2005 and developed his career as a musician and a music instructor in the greater Washington D.C. Area. He has performed at many prestigious venues including the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco, Lincoln Center in New York City, Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., Freer Shackler Gallery at the Smithsonian Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art, in New York City and many more. He studied violin with maestro Homayoun Khorram and Iranian percussion instruments with Ramin Rahimi and Arsalan Sedigh. Behfar has also performed as a percussionist, composer, and a tar player (a traditional lute shaped instrument from Iran) with many well known musicians such as Kaze Davoudian, Majid Derakhshani, Dawn Avery, Amadou Kuyateh, John Wubbenhorst, and Pezhham Akhavass. He continues his journey in the field of art and music by performing and composing music and creating artwork in different media.
