Free and open to the public

The Center for World Performance Studies presents the Naghash Ensemble in residence March 7-9, 2023, culminating in a public performance at the Keene Theater. The Naghash Ensemble combines the earthy spirituality of Armenian folk song, new classical music, contemporary post-minimalism, and the energy of jazz and rock. Three brilliant female vocalists and some of Armenia’s finest instrumentalists on duduk, oud, dhol, and piano play new music based on sacred texts by the medieval Armenian mystic poet and priest, Mkrtich Naghash.

Written by Armenian-American composer John Hodian, The Naghash Ensemble’s “Songs of Exile” is a meditation on man's relationship to God from the perspective of a monk forced to live in exile for many years. Part folk music, part classical, and deeply moving.

Co-sponsored by the Center for Armenian Studies, Arts Initiative, and the School of Music, Theatre & Dance.
