On December 18, 2010, the Koghtan Choir — under the direction of Haig Sarkissian — gave a concert at the AGBU Cultural Center in Paris. The concert was held to help the AGBU Paris-Youth section’s humanitarian project, slated for summer 2011 in Armenia
Over 100 people attended the event. The works of Komitas, Avetissian, Hovhanessian, and Zakarian were performed. Guest artists Lucie Deroian and Pierre Vaello gave their interpretation of Komitas and Sayat Nova songs. The evening ended with a cocktail reception.
With more than 40 concerts, both in France and abroad, the Koghtan Choir has been promoting Armenian culture and music for nearly 20 years.
