About the Safarani Sisters:

Bahareh and Farzaneh Safarani (Persian:بهاره و فرزانه صفارانی; born 1990) are Iranian collaborator twin visual artists, known primarily for their innovative video-painting and video-performance arts. The two sisters make dramatic compositions of themselves as the subjects to explore to sense of self in relation to the other. The Safarani sisters choose to incorporate particular themes and symbols in their work; a major theme that the sisters address is one of identity—as twins, as individuals.

About the Rasa Quartet:

Quickly emerging as one of New England’s finest young ensembles, the Rasa String Quartet consists of Irish-American violinist, Maura Shawn Scanlin, Japanese-American violinist, Kiyoshi Hayashi, Spanish-Vietnamese violist, Claudia Do Minh Ramos, and Korean-American cellist, Eunghee Cho.

In sanskrit, the term ‘rasa’ refers to the enchantingly indescribable power of any art form to evoke strong emotions in the reader or listener. Thus, our goal is to have audiences leave performances feeling moved and uplifted, feeling more grateful for the abundance of beauty in the world, with renewed inspiration to pursue their respective passions, and in contemplation of the more universal concerns of life.

By performing repertoire from the classical, world, and folk genres at the highest level of artistry, the Rasa String Quartet cultivates experiences that provoke powerful and uplifting emotions, foster meaningful connections, and help the classical culture become more accessible to all.

Our next upcoming live-stream is Friday, 10/30/20 at 7:00 pm EDT!
