Aida Shirazi Featured in New York Times Article on Iranian Female Composers
New York Times

Doctoral student in composition Aida Shirazi has been included in an extensive feature on female composers from Iran in The New York Times. The piece focuses on the Iranian Female Composers Association, which Shirazi helped found.

Born and raised in Tehran, Iran, Shirazi is a graduate student composer at UC Davis who studies with Professor Pablo Ortiz. Her music has been described as “well-made” and “affecting” by The New Yorker. She holds her B.A. in classical piano from Tehran University of Art (Iran), and her B.M. in music composition and theory from Bilkent University (Turkey). She studied santoor (traditional Iranian dulcimer) with Parissa Khosravi Samani.
