Taylor says: Excellent chance to see authentic Persian music. Beautiful arrangements from a true master.

Dr. Nader Majd, of Arlington, VA, was born in Sari, Iran, and began studying and playing the santur (hammerd dulcimer) and violin at the age of six. A year later, he received his education in tar and setar (plucked instruments) from his father and uncles who were well known artists in Iran. All these instruments are critical to prayer music in Iran. Dr. Majd immigrated to the United States in 1968. He started The Center for Persian Classical Music (CPCM) in 1997 “to make Persian Classical music known to our American friends as a means to increase understanding between our two countries.” The CPCM employs the universal language of music as a tool for communication and cultural exchange.
