He was only a year old at the start of the Iranian Revolution. 

But 37 year old composer, pianist and conductor Hooshyar Khayam is making history as the first Iranian composer since 1979,  living in Iran, to be commissioned by an American orchestra.  And not just any orchestra:  Duluth's Lake Superior Chamber Orchestra and its artistic director, Warren Friesen.

This week Radio Gallery spotlights the Lake Superior Chamber Orchestra and the start of their 26th season! The group is dedicated to supporting local talent from the Twin Ports and making great music together.
