Armenian music to be performed in Eugene, Oregon
2019-01-17 11:52:49

Portland's Cappella Romana, one of Oregon’s most famous classical vocal ensembles, will perform Armenian music at a concert at the Central Lutheran in Eugene, Oregon on January 17, Eugene Weekly reports. 

In a free concert directed by Lingas and Haig Utidjian, a British conductor of Armenian descent, Cappella will sing traditional Armenian chants and later arrangements of them by 19th-century Armenian choirmaster Makar Ekmalian and his student, Komitas Vardapet, known as the savior of Armenian music.

Vardapat collected and transcribed thousands of works that would have otherwise been lost to history, including about the Armenian genocide perpetrated by Turks in the early 20th century.
