An Evening with Lily Afshar

September 27 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Lily Afshar has broken barriers throughout her career. The first woman in the world to earn a doctorate in guitar performance, Afshar has developed an international reputation as performer, pedagogue, and recording artist. Her collaborative work with composers and artists has resulted in notable world premieres and seven CDs. Born in Iran to a musical family, she has also arranged and published Persian and Azerbaijani folk music for guitar. This remarkable woman is Professor of Guitar at The University of Memphis. Calvary’s Great Hall is the perfect acoustic to hear her play. A festive reception follows this free concert. Seating is limited, so let us know you’re coming on Eventbrite!


What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Secure parking is free for Calvary events in Calvary’s back lot, accessible off of Adams St., in between 2nd and B.B.King Blvd, directly across from the courthouse.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No. We will have a list of registered names at the Welcome Table.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn’t match the person who attends?

It’s best if you can let us know ahead of time. Send an email to klensch@calvarymemphis.org.
