TEHRAN –(Iranart)- A large collection of musical instruments are on display in an exhibition that opened at the Iranian Artists Forum in Tehran on Monday evening.
Dariush Alanjari is the curator of the exhibition organized by the House of Music.
“It is appropriate that we remember the living honor of Iranian music, Mohammadreza Shajarian, who earlier organized two exhibitions of the same kind,” House of Music director Hamidreza Nurbakhsh said at the opening ceremony of the exhibit.
“In our annual visits to Iranian cities, we become familiar with numerous instrument makers who possess a great deal of talent, and whose capabilities should be acknowledged,” he added.
Alanjari, who is also a member of the board of directors at the Instrument Makers Center at the House of Music, also delivered a speech.
“The main aim of the exhibition is to bring together instrument makers in a place that provides an opportunity for them to share their experiences and feelings,” he said.
He also expressed his hopes that the center would organize similar events in other countries.
The instruments will be on view at the Momayyez Hall of the Iranian Artists Forum until Friday.
