Another free family music program in September sponsored by the Friends of the Carmel Valley Library will be presented on Wednesday, Sept. 12 at 7 p.m. in the library’s community room.

His mastery of theory and techniques of Persian music has made him an accomplished teacher and a highly sought after accompanist and solo player in the United States.
