Armenian Genocide concert to be held in Massachusetts

PanARMENIAN.Net - In commemoration of the Sainted Martyrs of 1915, and dedicated to Archbishop Yeghishe Gizirian of blessed memory, the Erevan Choral Society of the Holy Trinity Armenian Church will present a Concert on Sunday, April 17, at the Holy Trinity Armenian Church in Cambridge, MA, the Armenian Mirror Spectator reports.

Under the direction of Konstantin Petrossian, Music Director and Conductor, the Erevan Choral Society’s program will include Armenian memorial, folk and patriotic songs.

Guest soloists will be David Ayriyan, kamancha, and mezzo-soprano Gohar Manjelikian, with Nune Hakobyan on the organ and piano.

“It is extremely fitting,” states Fr. Vasken Kouzouian, pastor of Holy Trinity Armenian Church, “to be dedicating this concert in memory of His Eminence Archbishop Yeghishe Gizirian, who was an avid and long-time supporter of the Erevan Choral Society and attended as many of the concerts as he was able.”

Gizirian served as pastor at Holy Trinity Armenian Church from 1974 to 1976; he was the former Primate of the United Kingdom; long-serving pastor among churches of the Eastern Diocese.
