Join the Concord Conservatory of Music (CCM) on Friday, December 10th at 7:00 pm for the Symphonic Exploration lecture presented by guest speaker Sepehr Pirasteh. This lecture will be held at the Harvey Wheeler Community Center at 1276 Main Street in West Concord.

Be prepared to explore the depths of some of the greatest symphonies ever composed, and learn how the symphony evolved from the 18th century to the 20th century. Some of the greatest and most important musical masterpieces were written in the symphonic genre. You’ll hear how more than 100 instruments work together to form a large orchestra and make extraordinary sounds come to life in a concert hall.

A native of Shiraz, Iran, composer and conductor Seperh Prasteh draws on Persian classical and folk music and contemporary classical music to express his concerns and fears about the political and social realities of the world we live in. As a conductor, he has been focusing on premiering new music written by young and emerging composers and conducting the classical repertoire.

We encourage all students attending the lecture to bring their instrument to sightread simple melodies that Sepehr has arranged from different music eras (classical, romantic, 20th century, etc.). Then, Sepehr will conduct participating musicians in an orchestral setting, and students will learn firsthand from a highly experienced conductor!
