Gifts from the Magi – Music and Poetry from the Near East
January 11 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$10
Saint Luke’s Darien invites you to an evening concert-talk in celebration of the coming of the Magi as revelation to us from the Divine: light, insight and miracle. The repertoire of Amir Vahab and his ensemble is grounded in traditional Persian poetry and music long known for their power to transport the listener to spiritual states through melody, improvisation, rhythm and meter that are found at the heart of all religions.
“Music should be so powerful such that one is powerlessly dragged to the unknown. It should invade the listener’s mind to the point of losing awareness.”— Amir Vahab
