Crossing Borders Music presents two Chicago concerts honoring the legacy of renowned Armenian musician Komitas (Soghomon Soghomonian) (1869-1935). Crossing Borders pianist Marianne Parker performs works by Komitas--including arrangements of his vocal music for string quartet--and works in honor of Komitas by other Armenian composers, including her own original compositions “Tristesse” and “Waiting for the Dawn.”

The performance honors Komitas’ legacy and remembers those who, like him, endured horrific tragedy and is the third in Crossing Borders Music’s six-concert series “Choosing Life and Freedom,” featuring music by composers who responded to terrible tragedies with music affirming life and to oppression with music affirming freedom.
