Speaking to the reporters on Saturday, vocalist Ali-Asghar Shahzeidi said that he along with singer Hossein Alishapur will accompany the orchestra during the performance.

“I’m very happy that the National Orchestra plans to put on a concert in memory of master Tajvidi,” said Shahzeidi who had worked with Tajvidi on several projects.

Shahzeidi, 70, added, “I’m currently in poor health, but I am deeply indebted master to Tajvidi and I feel very proud to have this opportunity to sing his compositions.”

“I hope I will not disappoint the audience [by my performance due to my poor health],” he noted

In 1998, the orchestra made its debut performance along with world-renowned Iranian vocalist Mohammadreza Shajarian as the founder, Farhad Fakhreddini, conducted it with works composed by Tajvidi.
