Standing Ovations for Sona Ghazarian .The gorgeous Armenian artist gave a huge charity concert in Moscow, after the horrid earthquake in Yerevan (Armenia) (1989), to help her own nation, specially children who lost their arms or legs… The concert took place on her own initiative, and that of her family in the “Marble Concert hall of Moscow. She was accompanied by the wonderful “Moscow Symphony Orchestra” conducted by the charismatic Mark Ermler. Here only an excerpt of the huge programm that was presented on this day.
Умница и красавица, жаль, что не в Армении и не по поёт армянскую оперу.
