Shahrokh Moshkin-Ghalam, Pejman Hadadi and Behfar Bahadoran will take the stage to explore the ecstatic art of improvised music and dance. Acclaimed as one of the world's greatest dancers, Shahrokh's revolutionary style will embody Pejman's masterful percussive expressions and Behfar's passionate motifs - based on the Persian classical Dastgah modal system and Maqam melodic phrasings - on Tar, Setar, and Tanbour.

The audience will be enthralled by this glorious celebration of Persian performing arts.


PLEASE NOTE:  Audience members are HIGHLY encouraged to arrive early to secure parking and/or consider transportation alternatives. We anticipate a very, very busy campus on this evening.
