Launch concert of IFCA – Iranian Female Composers Association at National Sawdust
April 1, 2018, 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
About the Show
The Iranian Female Composers Association (IFCA) holds their launch concert, presenting the music of Iranian women composers who are active throughout the world.
Established in 2017 by three female identifying Iranian composers—Anahita Abbasi, Niloufar Nourbakhsh and Aida Shirazi—in response to a lack of mentorship opportunity in the Iranian community for women, the IFCA celebrates Iranian women in music and the arts by fostering originality, honoring diversity, and strengthening equality.
Performers for the evening are pianists Ava Nazar and Erika Dohi, the Steinem Quartet, Alison Rowe, and kamancheh player Niloufar Shiri. Works will be performed by Anahita Abbasi, Aftab Darvishi, Farzia Fallah, Mahdis Golzar Kashani, Niloufar Karimi, Niloufar Nourbakhsh, Gity Razaz, Aida Shirazi, and Niloufar Shiri.
