Arjang Rad's The River
Purchase Ticket/Register for This Event

A musical-philosophical journey featuring piano, cello, and spoken word.
Cross Cultural Expressions presents Arjang Rad's The River, a musical and philosophical journey into the nature of suffering, of happiness, and the inseparable bond between the two. The River is the culmination of two years of intense work during the most difficult and emotionally painful period of his life: an immense ten movement suite for piano and cello spanning nearly 40 minutes.

5 - 6:30pm PDT, at El Portal Theater 5269 Lankershim Boulevard Los Angeles, CA 91601.


Before and between movements, he weaves a narrative based on a life-changing personal philosophy that he has also coined "The River," relating the story of how he transformed these difficult years into one of the most artistically and philosophically productive periods of his life, and learned to view suffering as not just useful, but as an indispensable aspect of life upon which all meaning, growth, and happiness depend.
