TEHRAN -- The Iranian Artists Forum (IAF) has recently established a philharmonic orchestra, which will be led Nader Mashayekhi, the former conductor of the Tehran Symphony Orchestra.
 
“Preliminary rehearsals have begun and some other musicians are joining the orchestra under the supervision of Mr. Mashayekhi,” IAF Deputy Director for Artistic and Educational Affairs Hamidreza Ardalan told the Persian service of MNA on Saturday.
 
No date has been set for the orchestra’s debut concert as yet, he said.
 
“Quality is our first priority, therefore we appointed Mashayekhi as conductor of the orchestra,” Ardalan stated.
 
Mashayekhi, who used to live in Vienna, was invited to conduct the Tehran Symphony Orchestra in 2005.  
 
However, he was dismissed from the orchestra in 2007 following his complaints over low salaries and delays in payment of wages of the orchestra‘s musicians.
 
Mashayekhi, 55, conducted over 10 concerts in Iran since taking the helm at the Tehran Symphony Orchestra.
