Lily Afshar Opens the 2016-17 Sundin Music Hall Concert Series
Saturday, Sept. 17, 2016, 8:00 pm— Sundin Hall
Lily Afshar has grounded her career on a strong foundation of excellent formal education. With a bachelor's degree from The Boston Conservatory, she earned her Master of Music at The New England Conservatory and went on to study at Florida State University, where she became the first woman in the world to be awarded the degree of Doctor of Music in guitar performance. She conducts master classes worldwide and has released many acclaimed recordings and instructional DVD's for guitar. As a performing guitarist, she has won a top prize in the Guitar Foundation of America Competition, Grand Prize in the Aspen Music Festival Guitar Competition, the Orville H. Gibson Award for Best Female Classical Guitarist, and a National Endowment for the Arts Recording Award, among others, and she was chosen as an "Artistic Ambassador" to Africa for the United States Information Agency.
A true citizen of the world, Afshar's concert touring has taken her to solo, chamber music, and orchestral performance venues in North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. From Wigmore Hall in London to the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in Washington, she has played before a wide range of audiences and learned to bridge gaps of culture and distance through her music.
