UIASO Norouz 1393 Celebration

We were honored to cover the United Iranian American Society of Oklahoma's Annual Norouz Celebration on March 14, 2014.  This huge event was held at the wonderful Farmer's Market with special guess Omid Sontani.  The event was MC'd by Tehran, who is an amazing comedian and had the photo crew laughing so hard is was hard to focus. And then he finished the rest of his stand-up comic routine in farsi and we were lost! Ha,ha,ha!  We are thinking everyone enjoyed the performance based on smiles and laughter from the audience. Then Omid came out on stage and thought we would have a riot as the people pushed as close to the stage as possible.  There was even a metal barrier to keep the crowd off the stage.  This was the second time I've photographed him in concert and the performance was no less than amazing and uplifting.  His music just makes you want to dance and live life to the fullest.  It's awesome to see a loyal following of this international singing star.

Don't think that's all to this evening.  I'm sure everyone enjoyed the above mentioned performances but we really loved the grace, beauty and talent of the dancers.  The energy and costumes of the dance team made the choreography beautifully synced.  So happy the girls were able to make to get photographed on the green screen studio setup on the balcony.

We would like the thank the other photographers that donated their time and energy to help with this non-profit event for the UIASO.  Thanks to Jim Felder, Eric Epperly, Jayceette Boger and Tyler Sismore.  We couldn't have covered this event without you.

Here are a few images from the evening for you to enjoy.
