The exhibition Arshile Gorky: A Retrospective is currently on view at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles through September 20. Hamazkayin’s Mosaic Concert Committee is organizing an evening of Armenian folk musical interpretations and original compositions by Armenian Public Radio and A Splinter, which will take place on September 9 in the courtyard of the MOCA from 5 to 8 pm.

The Museum is open late on this night from 5 to 8 pm and is free of charge. Everyone is encouraged to attend and walk through Gorky’s exhibit before closing on September 20. In the setting of the MOCA, visitors will enjoy Armenian Public Radio’s acoustic revival of Armenian folk melodies performed by Saro Koujakian, Ryan Demirjian and Mher Ajamian. While savoring a glass of wine, art and music lovers can reminisce with A Splinter as Ashot Tadevosian sings the humorous stories of our Armenian realities.
