$15 suggested donation. A program of music by Bahai composers and performers who, being denied access to official institutions of higher education by the Iranian government because of their religion, attended the grassroots Bahai Institute of Higher Education, a school which has been raided on multiple occasions by the Iranian government and whose teachers have been imprisoned. The concert includes two premieres by composer Parisa Sabet, who studied music at the Bahai Institute of Higher Education, including a duo that celebrates the Persian culture of her homeland that she has been forced to leave and an autobiographical violin solo dealing with the subject of resilience. The concert will also present Farsi songs newly arranged for santour, voice, piano, and cello, and excerpts of the documentary "Education Under Fire". www.crossingbordersmusiccollective.org.
