Piano recital Hayk Melikyan, honorary artist of Armenia
Saturday 5 October 2019, at 8 pm
The Boghossian Foundation organizes a concert to raise funds for SOAR (Society for Orphaned Armenian Relief).
It is an honor to welcome a world-class Armenian pianist to the Villa Empain. Hayk Melikyan is a highly virtuoso, but also has unrivalled interpretative skills, making him a popular artist on international stages, master classes and music festivals. He is masterful in both classical and contemporary repertoire, with composers from the Western and Eastern world.
This dialogue is also on the program for this evening.
The concert starts with Polonaises and waltzes of Chopin and with preludes of Debussy. It continues with four dances of Komitas, Another Tale of Vache Sharafyan, one sonata of Harutiun Dellalian and, in conclusion, Six Pictures of Arno Babadjanian.
The association SOAR was founded in 2005 (SOAR Brussels chapter: founded in 2013) by George S. Yacoubian and provides humanitarian aid to orphans in Armenia.
A network of in-country partners and international volunteers collaborate with SOAR in order to provide concrete support to orphaned children and adults with disabilities.
The organization is active in Armenia, but also in the Republic of Artsakh, Georgia, Lebanon, Syria and Turkey.
