IN Series Launches Digital Platform With Iranian-American Musical Collaboration

By David Salazar

IN Series, a DC-based opera company, has launched INVISION, a unique digital performing arts center.

The organization launched the service with a unique video collaboration between IN Series and the Tehran Symphony Orchestra. The video features several opera singers performing from Handel’s “Serse” alongside 19 musicians from the Tehran Symphony.

“If we have to make virtual work,” said IN Series Artistic Director Timothy Nelson in a press release, “let us use this as an opportunity to make the sort of collaborative creative experiences that would not only be otherwise inconceivable but which really do what only art can do: make the impossible possible.”

The project was initiated by Fatemeh Keshavarz of the Roshan Institute for Persian Studies at the University of Maryland, College Park.

You can watch the video on IN Series’ official website.
