87th General Assembly Festivities Soon Underway
In just a few short days, AGBU’s 87th General Assembly will begin in Armenia, and excitement is already mounting for the host of cultural and social events that the week will bring.
On Saturday, October 13, 2012, Yerevan will welcome hundreds of AGBU delegates and friends from across the diaspora. Many will kick off their stay with a two-day group visit to Karabakh on Sunday, October 14, and many more will attend an AGBU-sponsored concert on Wednesday, October 17 at the TUMO Center for Creative Technologies in Yerevan.
The TUMO Center, initiated by AGBU Central Board member Sam Simonian and his wife Silva, was unveiled just one year ago. Since then, it has established itself as the city’s premiere institute for media studies, designed to serve over 1,000 students a day. It is the ideal venue for the open-air concert featuring the TUMOrchestra and the popular rock band, Dorians, whose debut album, “Fly,” has topped the charts in Armenia. The outdoor event, which is free and open to the public, is scheduled to start at 8pm, and an after party with DJ Serjo is sure to carry the festivities well into the night. If you are in Armenia next week, don’t miss this much-anticipated event!
