The Tehran Chamber Orchestra will perform a concert entitled "Peace Horn" at Tehran's Milad Tower on October 18. The concert aims to convey Iranians' message of peace to the world, vocalist Mohammad Motamedi, who will accompany the orchestra at the performance, said during a press conference in Tehran on Tuesday.
A repertoire of songs composed by Ali Ghamsari is scheduled to be performed at the concert, which will be conducted Bardia Kiaras.
"We three have known each other for about 20 years and the concert is kind of a reunion that was organized by Qamsari," Kiaras said.
He said that one performance is not enough for such a project and expressed his hope that the concert will be performed in other Iranian cities and other countries in the near future.
Solo performances by kamancheh player Shervin Mohajer, ney player Pasha Hanjani, santur player Puya Saraii, and tar virtuoso Qamsari will also be included in the concert, he added.
In one part of the concert, the Tehran Vocal Ensemble led by conductor Milad Omranlu will join with the orchestra as a choir in performing three pieces.
"I have worked on the selections for this concert for four years," Qamsari said during the conference.
The idea of holding the concert was developed two months ago during a meeting Qamsari had with Kiaras.
Four pieces without words have also been arranged for the concert, which will be performed with additional help from the UNESCO office in Tehran, he added.
He called the concert "a dialogue between Iranian and Western musical instruments," which can also be considered as a hope expressed by the people in the West and Iranians for global peace.
The Zarin Iran Porcelain Industries will sponsor the concert.
