GLENDALE — Singer, songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist, poet and political activist Serj Tankian has chosen Lark Musical Society to premiere his 100 Years symphonic composition. Tankian is best known as the front man for the heavy metal band System of a Down, whose music achieved worldwide recognition.
Tankian co-wrote the 100 Years with New Zealand composer John Psathas for the centennial commemoration of the Armenian Genocide. Lark Musical Society is privileged to have this honor and will use it to mark the beginning of 100 events sponsored by LARK in commemoration of the Armenian Genocide.
The program, titled “Perennial Pilgrims”, will also feature choruses from Beethoven, Wagner, Verdi, Tigranian operas, as well as two acts from Serj Tankian’s Orca Symphony.
The event will take place at the prestigious Ambassador Auditorium in Pasadena on September 20, 2014. Tickets can be purchased by visiting www.itsmyseat.com or calling (818) 500-9997.
