30th Anniversary Gala Concert

Glorious voices take centre stage in the pristine acoustics of the Chan Centre as Elektra welcomes Canadian soprano Isabel Bayrakdarian for a compelling and unique collaboration on International Women’s Day. On the program is Abbie Betinis’ lively From Behind the Caravan and the Canadian premiere of hauntingly beautiful Armenian hymns arranged by Serouj Kradjian for Bayrakdarian, cello (Rebecca Wenham), and women’s voices.
