    Hafez Nazeri (Persian: حافظ ناظری‎) (Sorani Kurdish: حافز نازری) is an Iranian composer of Kurdish descent. He is the son of musician Shahram Nazeri.


    Move to North America

    The venues of Hafez''s performances in North America included Los Angeles’ Kodak Theatre - the most highly attended Persian classical music concert outside of Iran – the Atlanta Symphony Hall and traveled to San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and Boston. Hafez’s international appeal led to several invitations to speak at various media outlets, including radio stations such as KPBS, KPFK, KPFA, UC Berkeley Radio and NPR in the United States.

    Broadcast interviews include a 9-minute on CNN’s Live From with Kyra Phillips (March 29, 2006), BBC World Service’s program, The Ticket with Mark Coles (4/26/06), a live appearance on the Fox Channel (March 10, 2006), and an exclusive on ABC News, following a recent New York performance.

    Hafez is also the recipient of a UCLA creativity award for most distinguished young composer. The Irvine City Hall Award of Distinction in Kurdish music was given to Hafez Nazeri for his contributions in spreading Rumi’s spiritual message of peace through the language of music. The United Nations Association also recognized Hafez’s contributions and his innovation in undertaking the “In the Path of Rumi” tour.

    February 25, 2006 was named “Hafez Nazeri Day” in San Diego County by the Mayor and the Chairman of San Diego’s Board of Supervisors. Soon after, he received a recognition award from the United States Congress and was invited to lecture at Emory University, and Harvard University, where he was recognized for his pioneering efforts and innovation in Persian music.

    In 2007, the Rumi Symphony Project, which is Hafez’s most passionate and ambitious undertaking to date, culminated in a major work to celebrate the 800th anniversary of Rumi’s birth. The project was premiered in Los Angeles where it received nine standing ovations.
