"VICOrchestra " is made up of 17 to 23 musicians of various nationalities. Our goal is to perform contemporary-classical music as well as oriental compositions together with chamber or symphony orchestras, featuring stars from the regions of the Middle-South-East as well as Iran, Azerbaijan, Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Lebanon..
"Aftab choir" was founded in 2007 under direction of Afshin Khaef. "Aftab" means sun in Persian and is the only Persian choir in Scandinavia. The choir sings multilingual music from different cultures in different languages. The two most recent projects were "Persian Epilouge" and "Oshaghname" were held in Stockholm.
Vienna International Chamber Orchestra in cooperation with Aftab Art Organization and Campanella Music Academy (CreArt) are going to start a serie of concerts, in which the musical diversity from the Middle East should be made accessible to a broader audience. It should facilitate intercultural exchange, as well as foster contemporary composers, graduates and students of music universities from Europe by providing them with performance opportunities and interesting offers.
This program is approximately 90 minutes long (including 20 min intermission) and will feature the Iranian star singer Salar Aghili. The show is performed in Persian.
