Iran's National Orchestra

Iran's National Orchestra (Persian: ارکستر ملی ایران) was founded in 1998 under the conduction of Farhad Fakhreddini and dissolved in October 2012.

The orchestra had been formed by Persian traditional instruments, strings and woodwind instruments. During its 14 years history, INO was focused on Persian composers compositions.

In the Orchestra's debut concert at Roodaki Great Hall in Tehran, works by Ali Tajvidi, Farhad Fakhreddini and Hossein Alizadeh were performed and Mohammad Reza Shajarian was the singer.

The Iran National Orchestra also performed outside of Iran, in Switzerland and Kuwait.

The Orchestra was dissolved in October 2012, reportedly because of financial problems.
