Please join us as we celebrate the life of Edgar Hagopian with a concert inspired by his love of traditional Armenian music. The concert’s repertoire will include Armenian folk songs, opera arias and pieces arranged by Komitas, the well-know Armenian priest, composer and arranger of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Edgar Hagopian was known throughout the Detroit community for his kind nature, love of the arts and his strong desire to give back to his community. He worked his entire life to support local arts organizations and strove to make the arts accessible to all. In addition to financial donations, he also generously donated his rug showrooms as venues for concerts, lectures, fundraisers and art shows. Due to his generosity, Hagopian World of Rugs in Birmingham has been the home of the DCWS Nightnotes series since its inception in 1991.
