At the Orange Armenia Foundation we are commemorating the victims of the genocide with an exceptional concert that will take place at the Théâtre du Châtelet on 21 April.
Presented by the Armenian General Benevolent Union, this concert will be broadcast live on fondationorange.com at 8 pm on 21 April.
Armenia’s musical heritage takes centre stage
The program features works by emblematic Armenian composers: Komitas (1869-1935), whose melodies inspired by traditional songs are considered the jewels of Armenia’s musical heritage, Aram Khatchatourian (1903-1978), undoubtedly the most famous Armenian composer of the 20th century, and the young composer Michel Petrossian. The evening will come to a moving end with Mozart’s Requiem.
Musicians from all over the world
Performing under the baton of conductor Alain Altinoglu are the Armenian World Orchestra, an ephemeral group of musicians of Armenian origin from all over the world, the Gulbenkian Choir and prominent solo singers and instrumentalists.
The concert will also be broadcast live on Armenia TV and at the Yerevan Opera Theatre in the Armenian capital.
