ICE Showcases the Iranian Female Composers Association 

Source: I Care If You Listen.

The Iranian Female Composers Association was founded in 2017 by Niloufar Nourbakhsh, Anahita Abbasi, and Aida Shirazi as a global platform to support, promote, and celebrate Iranian women composers. Their sold-out concert was August 5th, 2019, curated with the International Contemporary Ensemble and presented at the New York Library for Performing Arts as part of Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival. It was the first time the women were together in person after years of virtual friendship and collaboration, and the program presented a video portrait of each founder followed by their featured composition plus pieces by IFCA members Farnaz Modarresifar, Shiva Feshareki, Bahar Royaee, and Farzia Fallah.
