Alexander (Ali) Rahbari, music director of the Teheran Symhony Orchestra, writes in from his rehearsal room:
In this terrible time when many orchestras are fighting with financial difficulties.
In this time when most politicians are supporting football and Tennis , because they are more popular .
In a country which had always problem with the music.
In a country which is suffering very much under the sanctions.
On Monday March 16 the new Tehran symphony orchestra and choir will play the opening concert with Beethoven 9 ( with complete 150 Iranian musicians choir and singers).
Is that not amazing?
