Day of Armenian Music, Arts, and Culture at UCLA

Day of Armenian Music, Arts, and Culture at UCLA

The fourth annual Day of Armenian Music, Arts, and Culture at UCLA will be a day-long festival spotlighting the depth and breadth of the Armenian Music Program through a variety of engaging events. The program will commence with a reading by poet and musician Raffi Joe Wartanian who teaches undergraduate writing at UCLA. Accompanied by music, the reading will be followed by a writing workshop with the artist.

The day will unfold with a concert featuring performances by the Armenian Music Program's VEM fellows and their mentors. AMP's resident ensemble VEM quartet and VEM fellows and mentors in voice, duduk, shvi, kamancha, and the oud will offer a vibrant performance of Armenian repertoires in diverse styles.

Following the concert, an outdoor community dance workshop will highlight azgagrakan (ethnographic) shourchbar's.

Finally, the day will conclude with a film screening and discussion highlighting the Oscar-winning short documentary The Last Repair Shop and the short film Conversations with Woodwind Masters. The Q&A portion of our festival will be introduced and moderated by UCLA film professor Zareh Arevshatian, featuring a rich conversation with the film-maker Armen Adamian.

All events will be free and open to the public.
