Nowruz: Iranian New Year at Segerstrom Center


Pacific Symphony in collaboration with Farhang Foundation welcomes Grammy-nominated musician and composer Kayhan Kalhor to the stage for our annual Nowruz celebration. Kalhor is an internationally acclaimed virtuoso on the kamancheh (spiked fiddle), who has been instrumental in popularizing Persian music around the world. A native of Iran, born in the Kurdish city of Kermanshah, he was a musical prodigy who travelled Iran to perform and explore the music of its many regions.

Pre-concert festivities in the lobby include traditional musicians and a Haft-Sin display.
