If you aren’t already making an appearance at this year’s opera, “Madama Butterfly,” go enjoy an Iranian Classical Music performance in the Alice Peters Auditorium, this Friday at 5:30 p.m.

Fresno State’s Middle East studies lecture, performance and film series, as well as the Global Music Series present “An Evening of Iranian Classical Music” with musicians Behrouz Sadeghian playing a percussion stringed instrument called a Santur, and Faramarz Amiri playing the zarb — also known as a tanbak, a goblet drum from Persia — and daf (a large Middle Eastern frame drum).

The event is sponsored by the Roshan Cultural Heritage Institute, Parsa Foundation, Middle Eastern Studies Program and more.

The performance will be held in the Peters Building, Room 191. Admission and parking are free.
