Mohammad-Reza Shajarian & the Shahnaz Ensemble are set to perform Durham Performing Arts Center in Durham, North Carolina on Saturday, April 28, 2012, at 8:00 pm
Even the grandly spacious Durham Performing Arts Center will be hard-pressed to contain the living legend Mohammad-Reza Shajarian, who has become Iran’s most iconic singer over an extraordinary forty-year career. A winner of prestigious UNESCO awards and one of NPR’s “50 Great Voices,” his rich and moving tenor seems to echo down the ages.
In Durham, Shajarian — with 17 musicians playing traditional instruments, some of his own design — reveals the magnificent ancient poetry of classical Persian songs. Do not miss the only Southeastern date on a highly select tour by an international phenomenon in whom timelessness, principle, and preternatural talent combine.
Tickets available through the Durham Performing Arts Center box office and Duke Performances’ website, www.dukeperformances.org.
