July 26 @ 7:00 pm

| $50 – $80

Tirgan Festival is proud to announce that Parissa, the Grande Dame of Iranian classical music will perform live at Tirgan Festival 2019. The legendary Parissa will perform at this year’s Tirgan festival with a group of acclaimed musicians including Pejman Hadadi, Amir Hosein Pourjavady, Ali Pajooheshgar, and Saeed Kamjoo.

Parissa is known for her extraordinary vocal ability and style and considered the most prominent and influential female Iranian classical singer of the past 50 years.The separation of humanity from the Source and the struggle of return to its original abode is a central theme in Persian classical poetry as well as in Parissa’s sublime art, and this program is no exception. The program will explore two suites of Persian classical music, arranged in Avaz‐e Esfehan and Dastgah‐e Mahur. With her soaring vocals and adherence to the traditional style, she will be singing poems from Hafiz, Sa’di, and Mowlana (Rumi).
