To commemorate the upcoming centennial of the Armenian Genocide, I’ve co-composed a very personal new symphonic musical piece entitled “100 Years” with New Zealand composer John Psathas. I’m very proud to say that the world premiere of “100 Years” will be performed by Lark Musical Society in exactly one month, on September 20. They will also be performing selections from my Orca Symphony No.1.
For more info and tickets, check out the link below. LARK's mission is to serve as the musical and cultural brain trust for the Armenian community in Los Angeles.
Please join me in asking our members of congress to demand that the Senate and House intelligence committees investigate Turkey's role in the Al Qaeda linked attacks on the city of Kessab in Syria, where more than 2000 Armenians were driven from their homes. These people were all survivors of the Armenian Genocide who had settled there after the First World War.

Below is a great review of the show by David Farrier of TV3 in New Zealand.
Christchurch enjoys its rock and metal, so it’s perhaps no surprise Serj Tankian was greeted to a huge round of applause when he took to the stage at the CBS Arena. One of the most recognisable and respected voices in rock, we don’t see Tankian perform often here. Tonight was special.
Tomorrow night, Serj Tankian is playing a one-off show at Christchurch's CBS Arena.
Known to many as the frontman of System of a Down, for many this concert will show a different side to the Grammy-award winning musician.
He'll be joined on stage by the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra, who will perform some of Serj's symphony found on his recent Orca album.
He'll also be performing with them as they rock through his Elect the Dead record.
The Eye For Sound App that allows you to unlock multimedia content for Serj's musical paintings is now available in the App Store for iOS and Android Marketplace.
