Perspectives Ensemble, in cooperation with the Center for Armenian Studies, presents a musical evening featuring the performances of Zulal, a vocal trio composed of Teni Apelian, Anaïs Alexandra Tekerian, and Yeraz Markarian, and Perspectives Ensemble members, Artistic Director and flutist Sato Moughalian, harpist Stacey Shames, and guest percussionist Mike List.

“Dark Eyes/New Eyes” celebrates Armenian music in a program that embraces ancestral village songs, as well as other traditional and composed pieces by historic and contemporary composers. 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, humorous songs, and 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, the 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.

If you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend this event, please reach out to us at least 2 weeks in advance of this event. Please be aware that advance notice is necessary as some accommodations may require more time for the university to arrange.
