Crossing Borders Concert

Crossing Borders Music will present Celebrating Resilience II: Music from the Unvanquished Bahá'í University of Iran, a program of music by Bahá'í composers and performers who, being denied access to official institutions of higher education by the Iranian government because of their religion, attended the grassroots Bahá'í Institute for Higher Education, a school which has been raided on multiple occasions by the Iranian government and whose teachers have been imprisoned. The concertcelebrates the positive responses the young musicians have made in the face of religious persecution, such as embracing through music the Persian culture they have been forced to leave behind, eschewing violence, pursuing education, and using music as an outlet and means of communicating their experiences.  Suggested Donation, 15.00.
