Tehran Chamber Orchestra to resume with vocalist Shahram Nazeri 

March 6, 2019

TEHRAN – The Tehran Chamber Orchestra plans to resume its concerts after almost a six-year hiatus along with world-renowned vocalist Shahram Nazeri.

The concert will be conducted by Bardia Kiaras at Milad Tower on March 13, the organizers have announced.

Songs from Nazeri’s latest album “Arash the Archer” released by Qoqnus Art and Culture Institute on Monday will be performed during the concert. 

Pejman Taheri is the composer of the album that features “Night”, “Tale”, “Hope”, “Arash” and “Farewell” selected from a poem collection of the same name by Siavash Kasrai.

Director and theater expert Qotbeddin Sadeqi, who is also a prominent actor, has collaborated with Nazeri and Taheri in this project as a narrator.

“Arash the Archer” is based on the story of the Persian mythical character Arash the Archer.

Legend has it that Arash shot an arrow from the peak of Damavand, Iran’s highest peak, to mark the border of Iran and Turan after the long-lasting war between the two countries. 

The arrow fell on the bank of the River Oxus in what is now Central Asia. Arash, who had pulled his bow with all his strength, collapsed to the ground on Mount Damavand and passed away.

The Tehran Chamber Orchestra was established by former Tehran Symphony Orchestra conductor Nader Mashayekhi in 2008.
