Special Performances

FACS presents
A Tribute to Ethiopian Music Legend Nerses Nalbandian
Featuring Either/Orchestra; Russ Gershon, Music Director, & Bruk Tesfaye, vocalist.
Sunday, February 19, 2017 at 7:00PM


This special tribute concert will feature works by Nerses Nalbandian. Born in 1915 in Aintab, Turkey, Nalbandian settled in Aleppo, Syria, after his family escaped the genocide. In 1938, having worked as music teacher and choir master at the Armenian Orthodox Church in Syria, Nalbandian relocated to Ethiopia where he shaped modern Ethiopian music from his position as music director of the Haile Selassie National Theater during the 1950s and 60s. Founded in 1985 by Russ Gershon, the ten-piece Either/Orchestra (E/O) is New England’s premier jazz ensemble. Their live show is a dazzling blend of Afro-Caribbean rhythms, precision big-band ensemble work and exotic Ethiopian sounds. The concert will be preceded by an informative talk by Dr. Boris Adjemian, director of AGBU Nubar Library in Paris.


$25-35, fees included. Tickets available here.
