GALA: STORYTELLING

One Found Sound is excited to bring you Storytelling, our end of the season fundraising gala. This year we will present a world premiere commission by Iranian American composer Sahba Aminikia titled Shahmaran

The story of Shahmaran is of Persian and Kurdish origin, and is believed to have happened in the Anatolia region (present day Turkey). Shahmaran is about true and ultimate love, and explores the duality of human nature and how evil and darkness exist relative to goodness and light. The notion that self-sacrifice and selflessness are inextricably bound to true love is prevalent in this music and appears in literature, poetry, and the creative arts across many regions and cultures. Shahmaran is commissioned by One Found Sound and is written for chamber orchestra and narrator. 

Join us for an evening of unlimited free drinks, dancing, and great stories with friends old and new! Also featuring the music of Haydn, Maslanka, and Mendelssohn. 

You don't want to miss this party!
