Hafez Nazeri’s Los Angeles Premier

He’s only 30, but composer-performer Hafez Nazeri, whose “Rumi Symphony Project:
Cycle One” premieres on October 3 at the Pantages Theater in Los Angeles (ticketmaster.com), has big ambitions. His genre-defying
60-minute work, draws on an inheritance that ranges from 13th-century Persian poet Rumi
to the celebrated singer Shahram Nazeri (his father), and forges a style blending classical Iranian
and Western musical traditions. On November 14, the project arrives in New York, where Nazeri
becomes the first Iranian to headline Carnegie Hall (carnegiehall.org).
