The multi-instrumentalist, composer, and recording artist has been featured in popular Transcontinental Music publications, including both the Ruach and Shabbat Anthology series. She has released three albums of original music and is currently working on her fourth. Arian has served on the faculty of Shirei Chagiga in London, and Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion in New York, working as a teaching artist in the Debbie Friedman School of Sacred Music.

Free and open to the public, the October 22 event is part of the Daniel Pearl World Music Days Concert series, which honors the life and legacy of the slain journalist Daniel Pearl, who was also a skilled violinist. Pearl’s parents created this musical series to reflect their son's belief that music can bring people together.
