A celebration of live musical expression of women and people of color. The word home evokes comfort, belonging, self-formation. Artists and composers representing multiplicities of identities often find home in music. Power and healing enter when guests simply listen. Music from Home is a house concert series that celebrates the live musical expression of women and people of color. Each month, Lakewold Gardens carves space for an inclusive social ceremony of wine, beer and musical storytelling.
This month we feature Iranian composter, Farshad Zadeh who started playing piano at age 4, and made his debut with orchestra at 11 in his hometown of Princeton, NJ. He has performed in concert halls throughout the US, including Carnegie Hall in NYC and the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia.

He earned his Bachelors at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, under the tutelage of Alvin Chow. He received his Masters and is currently pursuing a Doctor of Musical Arts degree at the University of Texas in Austin, where he studies with Anton Nel.
