MEHR Foundation presents critically acclaimed Persian setar virtuoso and world-class vocalist Fared Shafinury for a multimedia evening of poetry, dance, percussion, and strings at University of the Incarnate Word, Concert Hall. Texas-born and -based artist Shafinury is joined by Persian percussionist Rambod Dargahi and dancer and choreographer Miriam Peretz for his Microtone Project performance. Through Microtone, Shafinury explores relationships among Persian poetry, music, geometry, and ancient understanding of the cosmos.

Along with vocal, percussion, and dance performances, Shafinury uses narration based on classical 12th- to 14th-century Persian poetry by masters such as Rumi, Hafez, and Sa’di (translations available for non-Persian speaking audience members). The performance features stunning visual designs and animation.

Tickets available online at Eventbrite. No children under 10. Doors Open at 7:30 pm | Show starts at 8:00 pm

VIP tickets include a meet & greet with the artists and refreshments.

MEHR Foundation is managed by SA Persian Cultural Society & a registered 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization.
