Keyboard Concerts: Win tickets to Armenian chamber ensemble

Keyboard Concerts is best known for the world-class pianists it brings to Fresno on a regular basis. But the series also hosts several special events each season, including chamber music.

A concert at Fresno State (8 p.m. Friday, March 2) brings together three of today’s most prominent Armenian musicians: violinist Levon Chilingirian, cellist Suren Bagratuni and pianist/composer Karen Hakobyan. They have received international acclaim for their activities as performers, pedagogues, competition jurors and recording artists.

The concert is co-sponsored by the Philip Lorenz Memorial Keyboard Concerts series, the Fresno State Armenian Studies program and the Orpheus Chamber Ensemble.

Trios by Haydn, Beethoven and Babadjanian will be performed. You can read about the musicians here:

    We’ve attended the Keyboard Concerts since they began. One of the many memorable program involved the Canadian pianist playing Ludwig’s demanding last three sonatas from memory.

    I have never been to a Keyboard Concert, but I would like to go to one because I’m a self taught piano player, and would like to see a world class pianist in concert.

    I love chamber music. The Keyboard Concerts usually attract great artists.

    I was treated to one concert and sat behind a women who played piano and watched her tears as she mentally played along with the pianist. It was beautifully touching.
