Converging Paths: The Israeli-Iranian Musical Initiative
On Tuesday, March 31st at 7:30pm, the Israeli-Iranian Musical Initiative will launch with a special collaborative musical performance at the Alliance Francaise Theatre in Toronto. The concert will present both the exciting world premiere of three new compositions, conducted by guest conductor Shalom Bard (Toronto Symphony Orchestra Resident Conductor 2012-2014) and a collaborative performance with renowned guest artist from Montreal, Saeed Kamjoo, Iranian Kamanche virtuoso. Supporting the evening's debut are the Toronto Arts Council, co-sponsors the Center for Jewish Studies at the University of Toronto and partners the North York Arts and Koffler Center of the Arts.  

The evening will reflect the encounter of Israeli-Jewish and Iranian cultures through original compositions by collective members Parisa Sabet, Dan Deutsch and Noam Lemish. These pieces incorporate Jewish and Persian traditional music, the poetry of renowned Iranian poet Omar Khayyám and Israeli popular songs. Highlighting the event will be composer-performers Lemish and Deutsch, on piano and tenor saxophone, teaming up with guest Saeed Kamjoo, Kamanche, for a powerful improvisatory exploration of traditional music from Israel and Iran.

The Israeli-Iranian Musical Initiative (I=I) collective, created in 2013 encourages an intellectual and cultural dialogue between individuals and communities through artistic creations. The project presents the fruitful possibilities of cross-cultural musical collaboration.  In a statement from co-artistic director Dan Deutsch: "this project reaches out to the Jewish, Israeli, and Iranian communities as well as the broader Canadian society, promoting a cultural and artistic dialogue for audience members as well as for the performing participants."
