About Dr. Lily Afshar:
Lily Afshar has grounded her career on a strong foundation of excellent formal education, upon which she has built an exceptional record of innovative achievements. With a bachelor's degree from The Boston Conservatory, she earned her Master of Music at The New England Conservatory and went on to study at Florida State University, where she became the first woman in the world to be awarded the degree of Doctor of Music in guitar performance.
She conducts master classes worldwide and has released many instructional DVDs for students. She chosen as an “Artistic Ambassador” to Africa for the United States Information Agency.
A true citizen of the world, Afshar’s concert touring has taken her to solo, chamber music, and orchestral performances in North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. From Wigmore Hall in London to the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in Washington, she has played before a wide range of audiences and learned to bridge gaps of culture and distance through her music.
