United with Artsakh: An all-Boston concert to benefit Armenians of Artsakh

Following the recent large-scale act of aggression by the Azeri regime against the citizens of the Nagorno-Karabagh Republic (NKR/Artsakh), the Armenian Armed Forces demonstrated their determination and resolve in defending their ancestral homeland. As a result, the enemy suffered hundreds of casualties and approximately $170 million of loss in military hardware.

An all-Boston concert on Fri., April 29, will feature a number of artists and musicians from our community. All parties have donated their time and services, and the Armenian Cultural and Educational Center (ACEC) has graciously provided the Hovnanian Hall free of charge for this event, the Armenian Weekly reports.

The list of performers is growing, as is the list of the event sponsors. As of this writing, the event is co-sponsored by the ACEC, ARF “Sardarabad” Gomideh, Armenian Relief Society (ARS) “Leola Sassouni” and “Shushi” Chapters, the Armenian Youth Federation (AYF) Greater Boston “Nejdeh” Chapter, Hamazkayin-Boston, Boston Homenetmen, St. Stephen’s Armenian Apostolic Church and School, and the Tekeyan Cultural Association.

The performers list includes Jasmine Atabekyan, the Arev Ensemble, the John Berberian Ensemble, Sevag Khatchadourian, Maroukhian Trio, Gegham Margarian, Meghri Choir, Shahan Nercessian, Markos Shahbazyan, and the Zangakner Children’s Choir.

One-hundred percent of the funds collected through this benefit concert will go directly to the NKR Ministry of Finance’s bank account to support fellow Armenians in need.
