Pop and traditional singer Mohammad Esfahani will collaborate with Iran’s National Orchestra in its upcoming concerts to be held in late April and early May.

The first performances of the orchestra in the Persian new year (started March 21) are programmed for April 20-21 and May 4-5 at Tehran’s Vahdat Hall, Mehr News Agency reported.

In its recent performances, the orchestra, conducted by the veteran composer Fereydoun Shahbazian, 74, had Ali Reza Eftekhari, 58, singer of pop and classical music, as the main vocalist.

Shahbazian says the concert will include a selection of pieces from the compositions of the late musician Homayoun Khorram (1930-2013) in Esfahani’s albums ‘I Was Left Alone’ and ‘Haft Sin’ as well as tracks by the veteran composer Hossein Dehlavi, 90, and Shahbazian himself.

Esfahani, 50, graduated from the Iran University of Medical Sciences in 1997, while learning Iranian music from the famous Iranian traditional singer Mohammad Reza Shajarian and Ali Jahandar.

Esfahani has 16 official studio albums in which he cooperated with famous composers such as Khorram, Shahbazian and Babak Bayat (1946-2006) among others.
