Commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, The Armenian Genocide Centennial Committee proudly presents Soprano Isabel Bayrakdarian
in concert with Serouj Kradjian
and the Henrik Karapetian String Quartet.
Isabel Bayrakdarian is noted as much for her stage presence as for her musicality and she has followed a unique career path. Since winning first prize at the 2000 Operalia International Opera Competition, she has launched an international opera career, appearing at the Metropolitan Opera, Royal Opera House, La Scala, Opera National de Paris, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Santa Fe Opera, and the Canadian Opera Company, among others. Canadian pianist and composer Serouj Kradjian has established himself as a versatile artist whose readiness to break boundaries and explore different styles has made him an exciting voice on the international music scene. The New York Times has described Juno-award-winning and Grammy-nominated Kradjian's playing as a "persuasive balance between elegance and spirit," In April 2015, Mr. Kradjian's new composition, "Cantata for Living Martyrs," dedicated to the centenary of the Armenian Genocide, will be premiered by the Fresno Philharmonic and Chorus, which becomes the only professional music organization in the U.S. to premiere a work specifically dedicated to the Genocide Centenary. Reserved Seating. Tickets are $55, $40, and $30 (includes service fees). Available on-line or by calling the Theater Box Office at 313-943-2354.
