Composer Iman Habibi Gets Creative at ArtSpring

Composer and pianist Iman Habibi is at ArtSpring all this week with the Emily Carr String Quartet for a creative residency. Iman Habibi is working on a new piece for the Emily Carr String Quartet. His music is contemplative, melodic and very beautiful.

Habibi is an award-winning composer whose work has been programmed by prestigious concert organizations such as The Marilyn Horne Foundation (New York), The Canadian Opera Company (Toronto), Tapestry New Opera (Toronto), Vox Novus (New York), Atlantic Music Festival (Maine), the BCScene Festival (Ottawa), and the Powell Street Festival (Vancouver).

On Friday August 15th at 6 p.m. the public is invited to experience sections of this new work, hear about Iman’s creative process and participate in a question and answer session with the composer and the Emily Carr String Quartet. This is a unique opportunity to see behind the scenes of an artists creative process.
