We regret that due to the current coronavirus emergency, this concert is being postponed. We will post the rescheduled date as soon as there is clarity on the health crisis. Thank you for your understanding.

Perspectives Ensemble, in cooperation with the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, presents Dark Eyes/New Eyes: A Celebration of Armenian Music featuring Zulal, a vocal trio composed of Teni Apelian, Anaïs Alexandra Tekerian, and Yeraz Markarian, and Perspectives Ensemble members, flutist and Artistic Director Sato Moughalian, harpist Stacey Shames, and percussionist John Hadfield.

The concert pays homage to the journeys of our families, ancestors and departed ones. Six musicians offer lively and contemplative music, including sharagans (Armenian hymns), work songs and humorous village songs, folk songs preserved by the great Armenian composer-musicologist Gomidas Vartabed, in his own transcriptions as well as new arrangements, languidly beautiful melodies of 18th century troubadour/composer Sayat-Nova, music of Alan Hovhannes, and the beloved Lullaby from Aram Khatchaturian’s ballet Gayane--one of several new arrangements by Yerevan-based composer Artur Akshelyan.

Admission is free. Running time: 70 minutes.
