Kohar Symphony and Orchestra to perform in Detroit on October 30th

KOHAR(TM) Tours the U.S. and Canada, Performing in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Detroit, Chicago, Boston, Toronto, Montreal and New York's Carnegie Hall

LOS ANGELES – KOHAR(TM), an internationally acclaimed symphony orchestra and choir based in Gyumri, Armenia, will grace the U.S. and Canada for the first time in an eight-city North American tour, including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Detroit, Chicago, Boston, Toronto, Montreal and New York.

KOHAR(TM) is comprised of 150 performing artists, musicians, choral singers, soloists, dancers, and a pantomime, fusing the sounds of Armenian culture and heritage with classical music. KOHAR Symphony Orchestra & Choir is the only symphony orchestra that integrates symphonic-jazz music with traditional Armenian instruments to generate Armenian folkloric music in a modern rendition. Together with the most favored Armenian patriotic and popular songs, the program has been trademarked or branded as "All Time Armenian Favorites".

With audiences throughout the Near East and Europe and fans worldwide, KOHAR Symphony Orchestra and Choir has performed in Beirut, Lebanon; Nicosia, Cyprus; Istanbul, Turkey; and Moscow, Russia.

KOHAR Symphony Orchestra & Choir's DVD was bestowed the Intermedia Award during the World Media Festival in Hamburg, Germany in 2004. KOHAR also received the Anoush Achievement Award during the seventh annual Armenian Music Awards, held at the Hollywood Palladium in California in May 2005. The award was presented to KOHAR for its contribution to Armenian culture, which is exemplified in the All Time Armenian Favourites DVD.

Less than 20 years ago, on December 7, 1988, eighty percent of Gyumri lay under rubble, as a devastating earthquake hit Armenia, nearly demolishing the city of Gyumri and killing 10,000 inhabitants. The brothers Khatchadourian of Lebanon—Harout, Shahe, and Nar—prompted by their hearts and able to give generously, provided much-needed assistance to a city that still lacked permanent housing and employment opportunities.

The brothers did more than revive a shattered economy, they nurtured talent and excellence as well, and in the process helped to revive a downtrodden city's spirit, as they established the KOHAR Music School for gifted children, founded in 1997, in honor of their parents Kohar and Aram. The school was built in an old factory where the finest musicians were hired as instructors, using top-of-the-line instruments and classrooms furnished with the most modern equipment. In only three years, the school gave birth to a symphony orchestra and choir, under the artistic direction of Maestro Sebouh Abkarian of Cyprus.
