LOS ANGELES–After having to postpone its nearly sold out concert due to unfavorable weather conditions, the Hamazkayin Armenian Educational and Cultural Society announced on Tuesday that it has rescheduled its fourth Mosaic concert to take place at the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse on Saturday, February 5 at 8:00 p.m.
The concert will feature the same five-band lineup that was scheduled to perform at the October show.
Concert-goers will be taken on a journey with global rockers, Viza. Armenian Space Station will give the audience an epic performance of compositions incorporating Aram Khatchadourian’s stylings adapted by Greg Hosharian on keyboard with the metal drum beats of Barrett Yeretsian. Echocell will fuse the organic with the electronic to produce a riveting Armenian soul experience. A Splinter will guide guests on a journey through the humorous stories of our Armenian realities, while Armenian Public Radio will connect the audience to their roots through an acoustic revival of Armenian folk melodies performed by Saro Koujakian, Ryan Demirjian and Mher Ajamian.
The evening’s masters of ceremonies, Lory Tatoulian and Voki Kalfayian, will present the bands through a narrative of comedic introductions. It will certainly be an entertaining night – a mosaic of musical genre and style, in both Armenian and English.
Mosaic IV will also introduce attendees to the historic San Gabriel Mission Playhouse, a venue that may be unfamiliar to many members of the Armenian community. Built in 1927, the magnificent and opulent theater has genteel side boxes and chandeliers that replicate the lanterns used on Spanish galleons which sailed around the tip of South America en route to California in the 1800s. This impressive space promises to complement the musically rich program with a truly majestic ambiance.
The San Gabriel Mission Playhouse is located at 320 S. Mission Dr., San Gabriel, CA 91776. While the concert will begin at 8:00 p.m., there will be a cocktail reception starting at 7:00 p.m. Stay tuned for surprises that are in the works for the reception and that will be announced in the near future. For tickets to the show please visit www.itsmyseat.com or contact 818.935.3555.
Ticket-holders who purchased tickets for the concert at the Ford will receive newly issued tickets for the show at the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse. The Mosaic concert committee will be offering refunds for ticket-holders who purchased tickets for the October show and who cannot make it to the February 5 show. In order to receive a refund, please send an email to [email protected] and provide your initial purchase reservation ID by November 15.
As announced previously, proceeds from Mosaic IV will benefit a Hamazkayin scholarship program for students pursuing music and art education.
