The Bay Area Persian Music Ensemble is an inclusive community orchestra in the Bay Area, Northern California. It was founded in January 2020 and its goal is to practice and perform Persian music. The ensemble is directed by Faraz Minooei.
WHO WE ARE
We have roots in the Iranian plateau and our branches have extended far. We enjoy and practice the artwork that has been passed down to us for generations from the plains where civilization blossomed. This ensemble belongs to the Bay Area and is not an exclusive society. We look forward to collaborating in creative projects and meeting new members.

We practice every other Sunday from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm and the sessions are directed by Faraz Minooei. The membership fee is $50 monthly. Membership fees will only be spent on the costs of the ensemble itself, not to pay the members nor the director.
After you join, you will figure out whether you like to continue. We hope you enjoy and stay, but you could also leave the ensemble as easily as entering it if you think this ensemble is not suitable for you.
