Lily Afshar

  • ETHICAL SOCIETY OF ST. LOUIS 9001 Clayton Road St. Louis, MO, 63117 United States (map)


Beginning at 7:00 PM we’ll have light appetizers from Cafe Natasha’s, wine, and a Q&A with local tar player, Siavash Zamiran, led by our Director of Education, Dr. Travis Lewis downstairs in The Becker Room of the Ethical Society. Plan to arrive early for this special experience!

Who better to kick off our celebration of women in classical guitar than the first woman in the world to be awarded a Doctor of Music in Guitar Performance? Dr. Lily Afshar holds this this claim to fame alongside her long list of equally as impressive accolades. Originally from Iran, her performance will feature Persian and Azerbaijani Ballads which are sure to delight.
