The Seattle Mandolin Orchestra teams up with the Seattle-Isfahan Guitar Ensemble, led by Naeim Rahmani, for a U.S./Iran musical collaboration. An exciting new generation of Iranian and American composers will debut works for mandolin ensemble, guitars, strings, and voice.
    The Wheel features world premieres of:
  • "Medallion" by Joseph Pollard White
  • "The Stars Are Setting" by Parisa Sabet
  • "Destiny Suite" by Ashkan Saberi
  • "Of Seven and the Four" by Jeffrey Bowen
  • "Potter and Clay" by Farid Javidan
    These compositions are based on the verses of Omar Khayyam, the 11th-century Persian poet/astronomer. We're honored to present these challenging and inspiring new works. Don't miss this wonderful evening!
