Exchange Students from Armenia to Perform In Geneva


Young musicians from Armenia will perform in Albright Auditorium on Thursday, Jan. 18.

Hobart and William Smith will host the performance of ArmFolk, a folk ensemble of high school students from Armenia, who are visiting the U.S. as part of Rotary International Friendship Program. The show is free and open to the public and will begin at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 18 in Albright Auditorium. While in Geneva, the group will also perform at Geneva High School on Thursday morning.

The group of talented performers will offer a presentation of Armenian culture through music and dance. Traditional instruments such as the Spiritual Duduk (woodwind instrument), Dhol (double-headed drum) and Qanun (string instrument) will provide exotic and captivating sounds to accompany musical compositions incorporating lively dances, superb vocals and vibrant costumes.

A dinner and reception will be held prior to the performance at the home of President Mark D. Gearan and Mary Herlihy Gearan at 690 South Main St.

As part of Rotary International Friendship Program, Geneva Rotarians will host the exchange students in their homes.
