However, I do have several things on my platter that will make my life interesting for the next few months. Aside from my 9-5 job and the classes at night, the concert scene here in Boston will be hopping. A team of us are organizing two interesting concerts here in the Boston area at the end of Janaury. First, Gor Mkhitarian is coming to town. Then, we are flying in Lilit Pipoyan into Boston for a concert on January 31, 2004. You can grab details on these concerts at www.armeniamusic.net if you are in the area and want to drop by.
The process of putting together a show can be a little funny. Dealing with Visa's for Armenian artists, the airfare, accomodations, the concert hall all requires a little patience and optimism. But, I am happy to say that both artists are being very reasonable with their requests and the way they go about conducting themselves.
While Lilit is not on my label, she is a musician I have admired musically for about the last year. Actually, Arsineh lent me a copy of her first disc "Lialusin" and it is a strong debut disc. The Diaspora here on the East Coast doesn't get as much exposure to Armenian artists as say, LA does. So, the Lilit show should be special.
